Beth ( my Binder) had a foreign exchange student from Japan last summer.
She was the same age as Beth’s daughter. Her name was Kamachi. It was rough at times because Kamachi didn’t speak very much english…(like she only knew a story about Grandpa and a mouse…that clearly she had been rehearsing several times in a classroom setting..LOL). SO it was rough trying to communicate, feed and entertain this poor girl.
But somehow they all made it through.
Beth’s Daughter, Stephanie is involved in many activities, horse riding/showing, sheep showing, 4-H and dance. So Kamachi had to join in a few of those activities during the summer…Beth isn’t sure she was fond of all of them…but she clearly got a taste of the farm life..:) well at least farm life at the County Fair.
Beth made this fabulous memory quilt to send to Kamachi of their experiences together. She used the ten minute block…I am sure you can find a free tutorial on You-tube. I have seen it before.
