Holly arrives tomorrow evening. We’ll leave when Herman gets home from work to drive to the Savannah-Hilton Head Airport to meet her plane. Well I say meet her plane, but since 9/11, of course, all we can do is wait on Level 2 in the common area. It seems like such a long time ago, when you could go right to the gate and watch the plane land, etc. Katie made a big poster to welcome her. We’ve seen pictures and all, but we want to make sure she feels welcome in America. It will be a long night, but I am very excited that this day has finally come. Our area representative is going to meet us at the airport so he can meet her with us in case there are any questions.
I think we are going to take all the exchange students in our area (there are 4 or 5 total) to Tybee Island next weekend. Seth wants to take them all to the beach while it’s still warm. I guess the upper 90’s is what you’d call warm. Because 2 of the students are girls and Seth isn’t 21 yet, all the overnight trips require an “adult” chaperone. Herman and I will be filling in that spot. It will be an adventure to say the least. He also wants to take them down on River Street in Savannah . I also thought this would give the students a chance to pick up any odds and ends they might have forgotten at home. Swainsboro is a small town and doesn’t have much variety as far as retail shopping goes. Savannah has two malls and plenty of shopping of every variety.
Off to bed now to rest up for tomorrow’s adventure…..
