Nellie ~ Welcome to our Home...Welcome to our Family

We are pleased to introduce the newest member of our family.
This is Nellie, she has come to us from Denmark.
She will be our foreign exchange 'daughter' for the coming school year.

After Nellie arrived, our first priority was to register for classes...
so many interesting choices and not enough blocks in the day!
Our second priority...try the combination on her locker!!

The weather has been beautiful and a 'must-see' here...
Storybook Land and the Land of Oz.
(Did you know that L.Frank Baum lived in Aberdeen?)

Another important stop in Aberdeen, is our Twist Cone.
Ice cream cones, Italian Ice, Slushes, Twisters, Turtle Bars...
everyone seems to have a favorite.

Nellie has a great sense of fashion and I love her style.
She likes clothes and accessories...but, she loves Western Boots.
So, a trip to The Hitching Post was on our agenda!

Nellie, we welcome you to our home and into our family.
We are so happy that you are here!

Take care,
~Natalie

p.s. My month-long blog break was unintentional, and I appreciate those of you that sent messages of concern.
We have had a busy and joyful summer and I can't wait to share more about Amy's wedding and Emily's move to the East Coast.  And of course, more about Nellie's experience here!

How fun! Which boots did she chose?
When did/does school begin for you? I start the 29th but my daughter begins this Wed!

Happy end of summer :)

Nellie is certainly a beauty. It's so wonderful you give the kids this opportunity. I would be so excited to have them as well.
Wow, those are some fancy boots! Nellie could pull it off wearing them, but I think I'm beyond cow girl boots...lol.
It's so good to see your mom. She looks very good :)
I haven't been blogging much as of late myself and am supposed to be on vacation. Take care and I'll look forward to reading of your Summer adventures :)
Hugs~Carol
