Our world and our family just got bigger! The kids are so excited to welcome their new sister into our home.
Absa is an exchange student from Senegal (West Africa) and she will be staying with us while she attends our local high school. Absa is so patient and sweet. After just one day she's doing really well, especially considering how tired she is and how different our cultures are. I'm sure she's overwhelmed and there's a lot to learn, but we're looking forward to many adventures ahead as we share our little corner of the world and learn all about hers.
Sam and Savannah invited a group of friends over tonight so Absa could meet them. They wanted to make sure she'd see some familiar faces when she starts school on Tuesday. The boy and girl on the far right are also exchange students - Kalin is from Bulgaria and Lara is from Turkey. This is an awesome bunch of kids.
Welcome, Absa! We are so happy you are here. :)
