Oh, we love Youki (pronounced: You-key)! She is from Tokyo and we're hosting her for two weeks. She's seventeen. She calls us "Mom" and "Dad"! I know, right? I feel old, but in a good way. She is so much fun. Slowing down my speech and making myself clear has been a great exercise for me. I've been more aware of the boys' need for me to stop and ask if they understand my words. More than I would have expected, they've required more explanation.
So, here's some fun Youki pics!
