Anticipating Overseas Arrival
Now there's two weeks until Sae's arrival & she sent us some photos from her final preparatory session. We think the exchange students described their families in a few words, or summarized their communication with their families.
If that's what's on the board, then our family is described as "Song Birds." Sae's looking forwardto meeting our parakeet and singing with the girls. They've learned "Yellow Submarine" this summer (which I also know) and a few other classics through the Park & Rec's summer singers.
I also signed up this week to be a part of Allyou.com's Challenge on maintaining a budget of $25.00 per week per person (including eating out)! It helps we buy our grocery money in the form of gift cards - but I'm curious to track it more closely to see what's what. I know we spend a lot on apples, but they're so tasty! And filling, and good for us... I believe the old motto that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. And it may just be time for a snack!
