Holly has decided officially to stay on through May. She signed up for just one semester, in case she got tooo homesick, or just didn’t like the reality of America. last night she told us all that she wants to stay here. She has to of course go through all the channels and get her visa extended and all that paperwork.
Holly staying gives us more time to take her to all the places we want to go. I think we’ll go to Helen in the spring. We’ll also try to take her to the Renaissance Festival. Of course, we’ll also go to Disney and Epcot maybe during spring break. Maybe we can also go to Jekyll Island, Ga. and wherever else Holly might want to see around the state.
We must be doing something right. Herman, Katie and I have done a lot to make her feel at home. I think it helps that she has made several friends and is involved in activities at school. She has her first Cross Country meet this afternoon. Katie and I are going to watch. It is lucky that band and flag practice was cancelled because we have a no football game this week. Katie’s boyfriend, Cameron is also coming to watch the meet.
I’m not sure if Herman will get to be there. He has quite a bit going on at work this month. He leaves for Vegas for a week and then he goes to Boston for 3 days. Even when he is in town, we haven’t been seeing a lot of him lately. But I keep reminding myself that it always something big this time of year in the computer business. So many businesses are updating things or moving things/data/equipment around during the 4th quarter each year. Of course, during April and May nothing much is going on, so we get to travel and have fun then.
