TBT

Here is the family exposing our Swiss exchange student to some fine American culture and food at the Atlanta Hard Rock Café.  Sven (sitting next to Haley) got to experience a lot of new foods and places while living with us for a year, and he learned a whole lot of Southern expressions in the process!

Fall '14 001

He was a welcome addition to our family, and a sad loss to our hearts when he died a year after going back home to Switzerland.  I still miss him.

Count your blessings, my friends.

How sad. He was so young. I'm so glad he got to spend a year with you and you got to spend a year with him.

Have a blessed day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥
