There is something I have always wanted to do. More for the experience of doing it than because I thought it would be fun. An opportunity came up to do this very thing and I jumped on it when it presented itself. So here I am introducing to you our very own Foreign Exchange Student.

We have had her living with us for about 2 1/2 weeks now, and I have to say it is going much better than I ever could have expected. She is actually more of a teacher than a student. She came here last fall and has been staying with another family until now. We are hoping she will choose to stay with us for a while too.
She has been a great influence on our kids and on me.
So here are some things I have learned about her...
She is 20 years old
She is from South Korea
She is majoring in Social Work
She loves cheese
She loves to cook and learn new dishes to make
She is a great cook herself
She loves and is excited about watching American movies and TV
She likes comedies
She loves to laugh
She has a great sense of humor and is learning to understand and use sarcasm
She is very pretty, especially when she dresses up
She loves to eat
She is very caring and misses her family terribly

We are so excited to have her come and stay with us, and hope she feels the same!

awesome Sarah, and she is a lot like me in that I also love to cook, try new recipes, cheese is my weakness, movies & TV. I would get along with her fine. My daughter who is now 36 was an exchange student in Germany back in 1991 and was speaking fluent German by the time she left. It was a rough year for her mother and I but we made it through. It is a learning experience so grow all you can and enjoy.

She will be a year older on 1/1/11, but that is not her birthday.
