The gang’s all here! Now the fun begins!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

Our little family is complete. Photo credit to Nathan who joined us in welcoming Marta! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ˜Š

Each friend represents a world in us, a world not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.

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. ๐Ÿ™„ 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!

Mara and Martaโค Hopefully the beginning of a long lasting friendship โค๐Ÿ˜Šโค

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!

Of all possessions a friend is the most precious.

    Iโ€™d be interested to know your exchange students reactions to American History.

    • Beth W. says:

      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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. usfman says:

    I agree. Teaching History through dates can be a โ€œturn offโ€ for any student.
