Our German friend



Laura arrived at our house from Germany in late September. Her smile and genuine warmth was immediate the minute she stepped off the train. Her month-long stay is part of my daughter Alyssa’s school exchange program. Alyssa will be going to Germany for the month of March. The two of them have been very busy trying to get in as much “America” as possible in one month. All the German students seem to love it here and Laura gets visibly sad as the return home date gets closer. I happened to be reading, The Book Thief while Laura was here and she was a big help with the German words, except the bad words where she would giggle and turn away. One never knows what a distant visitor will be like but we got very lucky and I will be sad to see Laura go. I told her the downstairs bedroom will always be hers. Alyssa on left, Laura right.
