The beginning of Sept. we gave the idea of an exchange student a little thought, thinking maybe spring or summer for a couple of months. So as we were filling out the application the rep. for this area called and told us they were desperately trying to place a couple of kids and asked if we would host. We were taken aback by the suddenness of it all. Tues. it was a possibility, Wed. it was not and Thur. night Thore arrived from Germany.
He arrived on Thursday and his 17th birthday was Sunday. Sarah made him a cake and we celebrated all together.
The American pronunciation of his name is Thor so Dan couldn't resist getting him a Thor hammer for his birthday.
In his own words " I am awesome" and he is pretty awesome.
