Pia's Here!

After an unexpected night in Chicago, our foreign exchange student Pia made it safely to us. We were so relived to see her! We've been spending some time getting her settled in and signed up to participate in sports at her new school. A typical trip to the grocery store was made more interesting seeing everything through Pia's eyes. "Everything is so big!" she said. You should have seen the look on her face when I showed her the cold cereal aisle. She couldn't believe all of the choices! The children are determined to get Henry to say her name before the day is over. Now all he does is look at Pia with a little shy grin.

We've got a busy weekend ahead of us getting everything in place for school to begin on Tuesday. There are school supplies to buy and of course our annual back to school feast. I'm so excited to get this year underway. Summer has been lovely but it's no secret how much I love fall. Happy weekend, friends!


  1. Danyelle, I am brazilian and I was a foreign exchange student in the USA when I was 16 (in 1999!!). It was a great experience to me and I felt the same as Pia about the size of things at the grocery store, lol. For us exchange students is great to live with families that have kids because they teach us so much (my host family had 2 boys, 8 and 10 years old). After all this years I am glad to report I am still in touch with my host family. Too bad I can't go visit as much as I'd like too (I've only been back once in 2007), but thank God there's the internet these days. Enjoy her stay!
