Refresh! RefrESH! REFRESH!!!!

Earlier today, I received a notification that there was a new post in the CBYX group on Facebook.  It was a cartoon of a young man waiting by the computer clicking REFRESH over and over again.  That is what this week as been like for our family.  We should find out by April 1 whether or not Lauren is going to Germany, so we all feel like we have been waiting in limbo all week.

It hasn’t been all bad, though.  We have been blessed with a visit from our foreign exchange student from last year and her mother!  This has been so much fun!  Our family has not hosted for long, but I can’t imagine host families are able to meet “the family” very often.  They arrived on Sunday and it has been a whirlwind of a visit so far.  Of course, we are in school so, Susanna has visited at school for two days and her mother was even able to observe in the classroom.  She is a teacher in Germany and our education systems are VERY different.  Today, Susanna and Gaby are making dinner for us.

It has been an inspiring experience to get to know Gaby.  She has an amazing daughter only because she is an AMAZING woman!!!  We are so blessed to have such wonderful family!

Now, I must go and see what’s for dinner!  🙂
