EF Party

On Sunday, after a busy weekend in Las Vegas, we hosted a swim party/orientation for all the the exchange students in the desert, and their host parents and siblings. (Yes, I was up at 6:00 cleaning my house and baking cream cheese brownies.) Our "family lasagna" came out of the freezer, and I also made a Caprese salad, Caesar salad, cake pops, dip/chips and an appetizer.

The kids met with the local coordinator, privately, to see how it was going for them, and to check in about chores, rules, and any problems that have come up. The coordinator, then met with all the parents while the kids swam. I think we won the "Exchange Kid Lottery" with Federico. One young lady has been to the ER three times in the first 3 weeks. All three of us feel very lucky!
