Over the past few years, we’ve hosted several international students from all over the world. Most have been from Japan, but we’ve had a few from Spain and Korea as well. Currently, we have a delightful young lady from Tokyo living with us, named Yurie. Yurie has been with us since September and will be here until April, and I asked her if she would mind teaching the kids some fun Japanese things. This week worked best with her schedule, so we’re jumping ahead to “J” and next week we’ll venture back to “B”.
Our kids absolutely adore Yurie and we will all miss her terribly when she has to go home to Japan, but let’s not talk about that right now.
