Meet Asuka - our exchange student arriving Thursday

hmmmm two posts in one day

Meet Asuka - our newest exchange student arriving from Japan on Thursday.

We have received a letter and pics from her, which I have attached for you all to read. I have blocked out the personal details for privacy, if you click on the letter it will make it bigger so easier for you to read. She sounds delightful but I say that about all the students we have had.

We really enjoy having them come and stay with us, the kids learn so much. Asuka will be with us for 10 days and even though it's a short period of time, they really do become part of the family. I get quite attached to them, with every student that we have had so far, I have always cried at the end of their stay, I am such a sap, I dare say I won't be any different this time. LOL.

If you want to meet out previous students click on the link to the right.

As part of the exchange programme it is traditional to give a welcoming gift. This is ours to Asuka, a little bit of Australiana to take home with her. We are yet to find a student who likes Vegemite!

What a wonderful thing you and your family are doing by hosting a student from overseas. I know she will be so well looked after by your beautiful family Leanne!!
