We were so excited to be able to welcome Marta tonight! She had a SUPER long day, so is resting up tonight before our adventures begin tomorrow! We are going to see our famous faces at Mount Rushmore! Then, I believe it will be an early night for everyone. I think Mara is getting closer to adjusting to the time difference, but if her luggage would ever arrive, she would be much happier! Last we heard it MIGHT have made it to Brussels. 🙄 Her parents and I are trying from both sides of the ocean to figure out just what we need to do. We are hopeful that she will have it soon!
Luckily Marta’s luggage made the trip with her, so one less challenge to face. Registering for classes happens Monday and she starts school on Tuesday! Mara is a step ahead and is registered already and has visited many of her classrooms. We are hopeful that we will be able to walk Marta around Monday after she get her schedule set. Right now I know that it is all new and scary for them, but I’ll bet in a month’s time, they will wonder why they were ever nervous!
I am excited to have the opportunity to share our beautiful city and state with the girls and to see them blossom as they adjust to their new home and develop confidence and self assurance! It’s going to be a GREAT year!
Happy exciting times Beth. Enjoy. Allan
Thank you Allan! 😊 The girls are both wonderful and I know the year is going to be fun! 😁 I hope your weekend is off to a great start! 😊
A wonderful gift to these two young people.
Thank you😊 They are both delightful. I feel fortunate to have them here! ❤ Thanks so much for the very nice comment😊
I’d be interested to know your exchange students reactions to American History.
I will know soon! They are both in the same section of American History and school starts tomorrow! In the past, I’ve found that it can be a bit overwhelming, especially if the teacher focuses a lot on dates. Hopefully their teacher will give more of a big picture of history 🙂
I agree. Teaching History through dates can be a “turn off” for any student.
Sweet, Beth! ♥️
It has been busy, but so fun! 🙂 ❤ 🙂
All of you are lucky and I can’t wait to hear about your adventures!
