My friend, who runs the 4-H program in our county, hosted a picnic tonight for the Japanese summer exchange program. Students from Japan come stay for one month with a family here in Michigan. The ages for this program is 11-14. It was nice to see young children branching out and experiencing new cultures. Neither spoke English very well, but we seemed to communicate ok.
Em and I are hoping to get more involved in 4-H. I’ve already signed up to be head chaperon for Exploration Days next June in Lansing…3 days of fun, learning, and meeting new people–yea!!!
