Poor guy was exhausted and slept all the way home. Then went immediately to bed. We didn't learn a whole lot about our guest last night, but today he has come out of his shell! He is here to be immersed in English, and I am so impressed with him. He has done great all day keeping up with the boys' endless chatter, and they have all played so well together.
We stuck around home most of the day so he could get acclimated to a different continent and get to know us a bit. We let the kids take our two room tent out this afternoon. It didn't take them long to construct it in our backyard.
Of course we had s'mores once the tent was all set up. Have you ever seen such giant marshmallows?
After some playtime in the tent, the kids busied themselves for a couple of hours catching tadpoles in the water that has collected on the pool cover. And after dinner, playtime continued with a few nerf gun and light saber fights.
The night concluded with a wonderful magic show by our new guest, a show which had my boys giggling like little girls. He is a sweet, funny young man, and the kids really like him. We're looking forward to the next couple of weeks as we get to know him better!
