Skyping with my girl!

More about meeting my exchange student via the internet!

So... this last week I was able to skype with my future daughter - Ratu from Indonesia - It was cool!  Even though her video wasn't working, she could see me, and got a look at my office (14 hour difference.. I was still at work...).

She is so excited about her trip from West Sumatra to Atlanta in August. She is asking all kinds of questions - what does the house look like, what will life be like!

She knows that she will have a host sister here - from Pakistan - and it's fun to watch them already be in contact over facebook.

They will meet in the first time in September (when Anee from Pakistan arrives)... Until then, Ratu will start Chamblee in August when she gets here - "learning cottages" (aka trailers) and all!...

I am equaly excited and anxious about her arrival.  We will get her registered in school, get her enrolled in extracurricular activities, and start the school year with a bang. 

More to come!
