We had a student from Japan stay with us a couple week this month. He was eager to get to know Lois and Michael, our French boys, but between trying to get enough sleep and language challenges, I'm not sure it was that memorable for them. We enjoyed getting to know Hikaru though. His parents were concerned he'd sleep in or that he would lose things and so they emailed me. I appreciated the information and let them know waking kids up and helping kids stay organized is my forte! :) We got along great. He was really a nice boy.
Today they had a good bye party at the school. The group of kids he came with all go to the same private school together. The Japanese girls all cried. Really cried! They all loved their visit to Canada, it seems.
