The fastest 4 weeks ever!
Besides her weekday trips and adventures with her group, we had lots of fun "showing her America". Some of the highlights were taking her to church and our small group (she had never been to any church before - she said she liked the music), going camping at the ocean, going grocery shopping (she bought so much chocolate we weren't sure it would fit in her suitcase!), going to Mt. Rainier, meeting lots of our family, going to my cousin's wedding, going to the fair, eating lots of food with us, and playing with the kids.
It has been so much fun learning about Japan and speaking a tiny bit of Japanese. I loved hearing the kids say "oyasuminasai" (means goodnight) to Yukari before bedtime. We will most likely be home-stay hosts again in the future =)
