A Sad Good Bye
If you have been following my blog, you know my family has been hosting a student from Japan. We went to a Sayanora party for all the host families last night, and then to the airport this morning to see the group off. The first shot is of the plane going to the gate, and the second was shot after everyone was on board. Saying good bye was VERY hard. It is amazing how close you can get to somebody after only five days.
My family and I had a wonderful time sharing our hearts and home, as well as our food, scenery and culture. We tried to show what life is like in Missouri, and at the same time we learned more about Japan. (I am shedding a few tears as I type!) We are hoping to go to Japan next year and see each other again, but a year is a long time!
