From Italy/Spain to Rochester

We've done it again! We joined forces with CCI Greenheart to welcome another student from overseas into our home. Alma is an intelligent, lovely, sweet girl who is part Italian and part Spanish. We were thrilled to have her in our home for several weeks and to include her in some very special events like the wedding of our dear friends. Although we miss her greatly, we have many wonderful memories to hold on to and, of course, social media to stay in touch! As another brief update, our dear Thomas from France is actually in Chicago studying as we speak. Micah and I know how to sell that city for sure!

Soccer 2015

As if he didn't have enough excitement coaching T-Ball, Micah decided to coach youth soccer over the summer, as well. He ended up loving it and worked alongside another great coach/dad in the community. The team was a lot of fun and Addison was more comfortable and relaxed with this sport. Their smiles say it all and they were sad to see the month fly by. Fortunately, we all brought plenty of popsicles to hold them over on that last practice!
