I am just getting ready to pick up our exchange student at the airport. We have been looking forward to her arrival for weeks but as the pick up time approaches our nerves are kicking in.
The older boys have asked "will she like us?" and the six year old has asked me "will I like her?". Today my answer has been the same to both questions, "I hope so".
I really want a good experience for all of us. We are looking forward to introducing her to all of the things we love about our new home and hope that we can learn a little more about Italy as well.
The hubby finished the bed last night...
and put it up this morning.
(These photos are a perfect example of why I need to go to photography school. I could not get clear pictures at all.)
I love that my hubby made a bed out of 2x4s.
The boys insisted on trying it out. They wanted to make sure she had a good view looking out the window.
I am happy that we have her room all put together - on time - and I am looking forward to meeting the girl who will be part of our family for the next few months. I hope we can make life comfortable for her. I am sure she is much more nervous than we are.
I am also really looking forward to seeing what the hubby makes next. The boys have been asking for shark beds...
