Our summer has started off with a bang! We have so much going on I can hardly keep up.
We welcomed this young man to our home a week ago.
Roberto Fontana is from Lugano, Switzerland where he speaks Italian. He has done very well with the English language and living in our culture. He’s never been to the USA before and was amazed by simple things like the ability to buy ice at the grocery store and no payment for a shopping cart. He is a very sweet, sincere, curious 18 year old who adds a lot of fun to our family. Last night we couldn’t get a bird out of our garage. Roberto finally put some gardening gloves on, crept up on it and caught it with his bare hands allowing freedom to the bird!
We are also saying goodbye in a week to Konsti von Drachenfels. Konsti came to us last August from Germany and to be honest, I’m having a hard time letting him go. We are lucky! We talked his family into letting him stay three extra weeks and he’s going to Lake Powell with us today (we will be gone for a week). Konsti has been a huge blessing to our home. He has fit in so well with our family and we all are so glad we chose to have a foreign exchange student live with us over the past year. (Here is a photo of Konsti and Roberto hiking “my mountain,” Timpanogos).
We also had this amazing gal and her family visit us.
Becky and David Higgins have ALWAYS been so supportive of our family. They attended Kade and Taylor’s wedding reception, then spent an afternoon at our home a few days later. Their kids are so grown up and adorable!
We also got the honeymooners back and help them set up their new home. They are so cute together and enjoying life as newlyweds. Thanks for all the sweet support you’ve given them!
I’ll update you on our Lake Powell trip in a week!
