First week in America

Norma got to have 2 birthday dinners, one with just the family at Eataly as she wanted some mostly authentic margarita pizza. We were too full and tired to eat her cake, so we invited some of the other exchange students who have already arrived to our weekly taco Tuesday! It was great getting them together for the first time to talk about their first days of school!
Norma and Laura Martins Froede both started school this week and rode the bus for the first time! Norma also made the varsity volleyball team! It has been a busy 3 days but I know this semester will fly by!

Students' Arrivals 2021

We have about 400 students arriving in the united states during the month of August! We can’t wait to see how amazing their exchange year is.
