Today we finally got to meet Kasumi, our Japanese exchange student.
She will be part of our family for the next 5 days. She has been learning English for 4 years and although there have been some difficulties we seem to be managing to communicate just fine. We haven’t had to resort things down. It must be so hard to come and live with people you don’t know with a very different lifesytle/culture.
After dinner on her first night she gave us LOTS of gifts from Japan. She bought both the girls these kimonos (though she had another name for them) and did great with the sizing (though both shoes are a little small)
And this is what I got. We couldn’t believe how much she bought for ALL of us. We certainly were not expecting this but it was so thoughtful.
