    So here we go again with the process of being a host family for a foreign exchange student.  We were going to have one stay with us last year, but once I found out I was pregnant and due around August/September, we decided it would be a bit much having a new baby and a student.  We’ve gotten online and found a lovely girl from China who likes Gone with the Wind.  I never imagined I’d have someone from China who I could take to the Margaret Mitchell house, or to Tara.  Just waiting on word from the school to make sure everything is a go.  Wish us luck!

      That is completely awesome! Dang, I’ve never even been to Tara! Maybe you can take me next time I’m home! 😉

      are you sure you should be hosting when you have such a little baby? I hope you are not planning to use the exchange student as a babysitter like a lot of people do. The foreign parents pay thousands of dollars for their children to participate and the exchange placement agency makes millions – I hope you are doing this for the right reasons

      We most likely won’t be able to get one until next year because it’s already so close to the school year. I am still friends with the exchange students that went to my school, I went to their meetings and everything back then even, I know what’s involved. My husband stays home with my children, so there is no need for a babysitter! 🙂
