Friday we went to the local airport to pick up our new exchange student from China. Her name is Liu Shuer, but she is going by "Effy". She is 16 and is from Dong Guan in Guandong China. She is cute, smart, friendly and I can see that she will be a joy to have in our family this coming year. She is a tad picky about food, but certainly not as bad as Chloe. We will just learn to expand our dining horizons.
She is not the only new member in our family. We also have a new kitten, named Sarafina. I rescued Sarafina from the local animal shelter two weeks ago. She wasn't the prettiest cat in the joint, but she was definitely the sweetest and smartest. Unfortunately, Effy is terrified of Sarafina, so we are going to have to go through an adjustment period.
I guess that's what life is all about, making adjustments.
