We picked up our foreign exchange student last night. He seems very sweet, and he is almost as tall as my son (who is six feet tall!) We like just outside of Indy. he missed his flight from New jersey to here, and there were no more flights left, SO we ended up driving to Chicago at the last minute to pick him up. His flight did not get in until late so we did not get home last night until around 2:00 a.m.!
The airport in New Jersey said if we did not go to get him in Chicago, he would be "on his own" in that airport overnight. Can you imagine leaving a 16 year-old foreign kid in that situation? I just about passed out when i heard that!! Poor kid. I think he will love it here, though.
