Another Elisabetta.

Iris says good-bye to Cory...she's getting a puppy upon her return to Finland!

I am starting a new blog for hosting our 2011-12 student from Italy, Elisabetta.

Iris returned to Finland where she has already started school for this year. She reports that her English speaking isn't quite as fluent after just a month even though she found speaking Finnish a bit challenging upon arriving back at home. Who would have thought?

Our home has been very different without her and we miss her at the same time we are awaiting our new student. It will be hard not to expect her to fill Iris's place as she will be her own person with an entirely new experience. Keeping expectations in check but you can't help looking forward to this new experience.

We also are looking forward to seeing Iris again sometime, sooner than you might imagine!

Closing down the blog

Things are going well with hosting an AFS student but I decided to not add any more posts at this time. You can view Iris's blog by clicking on the blog list to the right to see how things are going from her prespective.

Meanwhile we will be applying to host next year and are excited to hear Iris's family will be hosting a student in Finland next year as well.
