Guess what we're getting?.......

A German Girl!!!!!

Jade, my daughter is in Grade 10 this year. She came home from school one day asking if she could participate in an exchange program and be a host family for a girl who is coming to visit Woodstock from October 10 - October 27.

Initially we said no because the timing is just not the best....we have a whole mess of stuff going on in October, but then we thought the experience will be awesome for Jade so we agreed.

So on October 10th we pick up our girl from the school and she stays with us until October 27th. The school has a jam-packed 17 days scheduled for the group. They do something every single day they are here and they spend weekends with their host families. Some of the things they are going to do is visit Toronto (CN Tower, Eaton Centre, Legislature, Raptors game), Niagara Falls, St. Jacobs, Otterville, Longpoint, Backus Mills, Woodstock Museum and we have a pot luck with all of them as well.

It should be an interesting experience for all of us!

Ines is coming from Johannes-Kepler-Gymnasium in Reutlingen Germany.

I'll keep you posted on the adventure!!!


Chow for now,

Jacqui

I am sure this will be an awesome adventure... I loved having exchange students in school. My brother also did this while we lived in Germany as well. Have fun!!
