A strange thing happens in our life now and then. Students find us.
The latest one to find us is Bobby. He is from China and will be going to high school here. He emailed us before the summer to see if we'd have a room, and we do. He seems like a really nice boy. Today I picked him up at a house that his mother and aunt are renting. They're here to help get him settled. He seems pretty confident and excited about being here. His mother and his aunt came to our house and helped him unpack and get all organized. She also wanted to take the bus from here to his school so she could see exactly how he'll get to school.
I can't imagine sending my son to China to go to school. Must be a little heart breaking. We will take good care of him though! I think he will fit in well with our family!
