Exchange Rotarians from Turkey

These pictures are from April, but I didn't have a card reader to put them on the internet...

Eric is in Rotary Club here in Wentzville & they were having an exchange program where some of the Rotary International members wanted to come to the US, so we decided being a host family would be a great opportunity for our family to learn more about Turkey. The girls, Funda Yuksel & Ozgecan Ozenc, were very sweet and we really enjoyed having them.

At the winery when we all met.

Grant's classmate, Jake, who is VERY into soccer, was thrilled to meet some people from people from Turkey.

Ozge, Drew & Funda

We took them to our church. They were very interested in our religion.
We plan on doing being a host family each year and have already signed up for next year.

First day of school 09-10

I always forget the images upload in the reverse order, so there are 2 of the boys all together. Here are the boys on their first day of school. Grant's in 8th grade, Ty's in 7th and Drew's in all day Kindergarten! I love their school and am thrilled that they will all be in the same school this year!
