Our Host Family
This summer, as well as last summer, Brian and I have lived with a host family, the Joachims (pronounced Yo-kims). We were a little apprehensive last year about living with a host family because we'd never done it before, but I am so glad we decided to anyway. The Joachims are wonderful! They are gracious enough to let us have the basement all to ourselves which includes a bedroom, bathroom, and den with a big screen tv! Their two boys, Joey (12) and Josh (9 I think), provide quite a bit of entertainment for us too. With the boys and the two German Shepherds (Griz and Roni) around, there never seems to be a dull moment! Anyway, thought you might enjoy some pictures of the family so you can put faces with names. Most of these pictures were taken by Kari when they went down to Florida to watch some Red Sox spring training games. Tim and Joey are huge Red Sox fans.
In other exciting news, Josh is getting some hamsters soon thanks to his good behavior in school these last few weeks. Tim and Kari were actually hoping he'd screw up so that they didn't have to buy the rodents, but unfortunately, as Josh said last night, "his good behavior has been up and running."
Also, Brian is coming home tonight (3am) from a long road trip in Canada. I'm so excited to see him. Thankfully these long road trips don't occur too often. Enjoy the rest of the pictures!
