Over the weekend we were able to talk to Annie through E-mails she sounds like such a wonderful child that will be able to make friends quickly. We sent questions back and forth she did ask us if the kids at the school she would be attending were like the girls in the movie “ Mean Girls”. Lori wrote back to her and said . “Unfortunately people like the ones in the movie Mean Girls exist everywhere but the majority of people in school here are nice and just want to be friends“. I am already proud of her for have the courage to come to the us to live with us for 11 months. It has to be a scary thing, she is used to living away from home during the week because she is in boarding school. Still it is a huge step to take for some one about to turn 16. Below are some photo’s of Annie military school she had to go for 10 days. And the photo below that is outside her school beautiful street I love the way the trees cover the road. Because she is in boarding school during the week she only has contact with us on the weekends when she goes home. That good give us both some thing to look forward to.
