Week one

Our lives have changed a lot in a week! Not that long ago it was just the two of us, but it's amazing how quickly you can adjust to a teenager from another country moving in with you!

It's going pretty well I think. After the initial flurry of excitement and getting her moved in and settled, and the sort of tragic first day of school we are somewhat settling into a routine. We go to work, she goes to school, in the evening there is family dinner, homework, exercise, TV or internet time. Or wal-mart. There's always wal-mart!

Other good news-she has enjoyed pretty much all the American foods and restaurants we have tried so far. Last night was her first meatloaf-which was another hit. Although to be fair, pretty much everyone likes Jerry's meatloaf. 

She also got to see rain and a pretty impressive thunder and lightning show-rarities in her home country. 

Less exiting though, math homework. 

Tomorrow will be the end of the first full week of school and then we have a busy weekend planned! Stay tuned!
