sayona saeka

Well we had a fabulous time with Saeka staying with us, but all too soon the week was up and she was on her way home.  Ive been too busy since then to load this, but am doing it now.
I gave her a small quilt to take home with her to remember us by - Im sure she loved it!

Last night Saeka made us dinner - it was sushi and it was delicious!  Saeka tells me that she has never made it before but we think she did a fabulous job.


What a lovely way to spend a sunny winters Sunday - fishing.  Unfortunately no fish were caught but Saeka did get a bite - but the fish got away!

Saeka had and I quote "the most fantastic experience of her life" helping Gary milk tonight.  She enjoyed herself so much and quickly the hang of how to milk!
Also a thankyou to Saeka and her family for the lovely gifts she gave us last night - here is what she gave Gary and I, Megan has her gifts in her room.

We are blessed to have a student from Japan come and live with us for a week.  Her name is Saeka and she arrived yesterday.  She quickly fitted into our family and soon was outside meeting all our animals- with Megan's help.
