One week with our exchange student

As of last night, one week has passed already! It has been going well so far and I think we are all enjoying it. Leony is helpful and easy going. She does chores and volunteers to help out even more. She's not a picky eater and she has a small appetite so feeding her has not been difficult. She seems fine spending time on her own while I am at work and equally happy to be around lots of people. She is great with our cats. Momo and Erin are LOVING all the extra attention. :)

On Sunday we baked cookies and made a peach pie for my neighbor recovering from surgery.


Last night we made the pastry shell for the Heirloom Tomato Tart we are making for the cookout on Friday with the other exchange student family. I'm having fun explaining things to her and teaching her stuff. She's excited to be involved and learn. 

Her English is very good. Yesterday she took a test as part of the registration for school and she scored a 4.6 out of 6. I was so impressed!

There are quite a few students in her program who do not yet have host families. If you are interested, please check the International Experience website.
