Wow, revamping the budget. We're def hosting a foreign exhchange student.

May 2nd, 2014 at 12:03 pm


Yep, got the call this AM from the school. The young lady who will be a junior in high school next year would like to stay with us. Because she is an only child, she can experience a large active American family - with someone her age/grade for school help. And she will have her own room. It will indeed be interesting. I am thinking we'll all be listening to some Rosetta Stone Learn to Speak Italian tapes in our spare time.

She'll be arriving 15 days before school starts and return home right before Christmas after the first semester ends. I will need a new mattress and curtains for the spare room, and rearrange some furniture.

We get the email information early next week so the girls can start to correspond. Wow. Three teenage girls in one bathroom will be very interesting!

Anyhow, wanted to share my excitement. SNAFU, I don't know how to PM you on the forum. Can you tell me how? I'd like to find out what your experiences have been. THANKS!

    Exciting news!! I'm sure it will be great.

  2. CB in the City Says:

    Does the school provide some kind of stipend to you for hosting a student?

  3. Wife of the Deacon Says:


    Yep - $500/month. Smile
    If it was a yearlong placement through a more organized group, it would be $1000.

    That is awesome news! What a great experience for your family, as well as for the exchange student.
