The first group outing: Washington D.C.

I had a great time meeting all of the students at orientation.  On Saturday the wonderful Dempsey, Gach, Miller, Scott & Thomas families took the students in Albemarle, Fluvanna and Louisa county. Looks like they had a great time together!  I’m so glad they had a good time. The benefits of these kind of gatherings…

Students of 2016/17: They’re all here!

I love our host families and feel so incredibly honored to get to witness their generosity, and the thoughtfulness with with they plan for their students arrival. The year is full of great moments, but one of my favorites is the first one when our families and students meet in person for the first time….
