This Tuesday we have a girl from France coming to live with us for a week. I just received a little booklet from the school that talks about hosting a student – I had no idea the preparation involved! I fear this poor girl will go home with the following impression of Americans based upon my household, “They sure do watch TV a lot and spend hours with laptops on their thighs and, gee, do they eat anything that doesn’t come out of a micrwave? Are they always rushing around and being late to things? Americans sure like to sleep late and, boy, are they loud!!!”

Poor Lucie has no idea what she is in for!!! Any tips?
