Our newest member of the C family!

For awhile anyways!
Last night we headed to the airport to pick up our greatly anticipated English exchange student. If you can remember we did this 2 years back with my older son Ben. Well it was Roger's turn this year. His student flew in last night and will be part of our craziness for little over a week. Well here is how the scene from his arrival went down...

We waited patiently for his flight to come in. The princess lead the boys (and a few other participants) in an intense game of Simon Says. She totally has them wrapped!

Then we got word that their plane touched down and the group lined up waiting to see them come through the gate.

This was the scene when they came around the corner... YIKES!!! Some in our group brought noise makers and silver confetti ( I am sure the airport loves us for that lol)

then they finally made it to the group after first running away when they saw and HEARD the noise. It was so funny!
