We're getting a Japanese kid! Really. :-) We've decided to be a host family for a exchange student over the summer. Our hsing theme this year has been World Geography and Cultures and as a result my oldest has fallen in love with Japanese culture. He has been studying the Japanese language for the last several months, keeping a notebook and taking the tests all on his own, and reading everything he can about Japan. So when we saw that families were needed to host Japanese exchange students, we knew it was something we wanted to do!
We're very excited and still in the application stage- we have to go through background checks and get reference letters, etc... But we had our Home Visit/Interview this past weekend and it went very well.
Wish us luck! We've already seen pictures and learned a little about the boy who will be coming here. We can't wait to meet him. :-)

I used to live in Japan and you are going to have a wonderful time with your new son!
We also had an exchange student from Japan and we have memories of the times together. I remember having to teach the girl how to do the shower. (She didn't know to turn the lower knob to make the water go from the tub to the shower part.)So many things we do without thinking about how we learned them!
