On Friday night we celebrated Faye's birthday. Faye is an international student from Beijing, China. My parent's are her welcome family. We were so glad to give her an 'American' birthday with candles, cake, and ice cream. She was surprised when we brought out the cake. We included a special candle that my sister picked up while she was in China. It lights the little candles and plays "Happy Birthday". What fun!! Faye enjoyed opening gifts that included a BU tshirt and a picture of the family for her new dorm room. We look forward to getting to know Faye and her friend Sarah more! My nephew went with them to the BU spirit rally for new students. They should be all ready for Saturday football now.
Steve and I both had to get ready for the beginning of school during the weekend. I spent lots of time cutting out laminated things and Steve got his sylibi ready for classes. It is hard to think about summer being really over. Steve and I enjoyed a Sunday school get-together Saturday night. I also helped at Mission Waco on Saturday morning with EJ. What fun it was to give out school supplies and see some families from my school.
