HJ and H hanging out together while I make breakfast. H is always tagging along behind our exchange student. T is excited to see him also, now that he's over the flu. We introduced HJ to A's family on sunday. It was fun to be out at Grandma and Grandpa's house. HJ was exhausted by all the english speaking and had to take a nap in the afternoon. GG Doris talked his ear off about the Phillipines, being a teacher and Grandpa Hal. When we got home, HJ just walked downstairs and sat infront of the TV for the rest of the evening. Poor kid! Everyone was impressed with his language skills and his friendly personality. He truly is a great person. We are very fortunate to have him in our home.
Oatmeal-chocolate and butterscotch chip cookies! I made these last week and they didn't make it to the weekend. They were delicious! The exchange students at Kaplan were brought samples and so we were on the hook friday evening to host dinner:
Here is our student and his classmates (also from Sout Korea). We had a great time and learned that cilantro is not a favorite flavor in South Korea. The students seemed to enjoy the indian food and marionberry pie. After dinner, A taught the gang how to play "uno". Good times!

On saturday, we had dinner with some of my family at Thai Thai Restaurant on Division St. It was AWESOME! The food was great and very prompt. There were only two other tables filled at 6:30 on a saturday night. I will be craving their food for weeks to come. If you have the opportunity to visit, skip the pad thai and go strait for the fried asparagus. You'll thank me!
