After only a month and a half of waiting, our homestay student is FINALLY arriving on Friday morning.  Hello, family of 7!

She's coming from China and she'll be here until June.  I'm not sure exactly what part of China she's coming from, other than somewhere nearish Shanghai.  Anyone have an idea for a nickname for her, other than That Chinese Girl?

What about either just China or Shanghai? How exciting for you though. Does she speak any english yet?

She does speak some English, but not very much -- at least she speaks more English than I do Mandarin.  And, it turns out that she's here to graduate, so she'll be with us at least two years.

Hm.  I'm not in love with the idea of China or Shanghai...now that I've met her, they don't seem to fit.  Maybe I'll think of something to do with china, like a teacup or something.  :)
