A long-awaited cool front moved through last night and turned the weather from 100+ to 70's. Yeah!!!!!! I cannot begin to explain how sick we have all been of hot weather. Today was simply fabulous. And it is supposed to stay this way all week.
Our little local college has a lot of international students, including many from China. The college tries to find American host families for them, to help explain American culture, feed them the occasional meal, and give them ties to people other than college students. We volunteered to be a host family and were matched with XiaoYue from China. This evening we had a cookout and invited XiaoYue and her roommate MengTing, my Aunt Sharon, and my parents and their Indonesian student Raisa. We had a grand time. We ate hamburgers and watermelon and then just played in the backyard.
We introduced the Chinese students to our favorite outdoor game - bocce.
