It is nice when you get to see a familiar face from home. It is kind of like when you run into an old friend in the grocery store that you have not seen in awhile. Living in another country it is difficult at times when all of your friends and family live in the states. We are lucky to have new friends here but nothing can replace those old friendships. It was so nice to have our friend Karen come and stay with us for almost a week. While we really did not get to do anything...mostly because of rain and school we still had a great time. Thanks Karen for taking the time to fly down here and see all of us....we miss you and love you!
