Farewell to Chris

Another daughter has left the nest. Chris was our second exchange student from Beijing China and she has become like another daughter to us. Chloe and Pearl were out of sorts all day after Chris left, acting out and being moody. It was clear that they missed their big sister, who has returned home to China for the Summer and then will return to the United States in the Fall to attend college at the University of Washington in Seattle. We are making plans to have her with us for Christmas. Pearl keeps asking when Christmas is.

Dad drove Chris to the airport at 3:30 AM so that she could catch her 6 AM flight to San Franscisco and then onto Beijing. Her friend Alana spent the night so that she too, could go to the airport to say goodbye and wish Chris well. Chris, we wish you all the best in whatever you do and we will always be here for you if you need anything.
