Visiting with our old neighbors. ️
About a year ago Dean and I were looking for someone to help us with language and to come to our home and speak Turkish with our family. We met this sweet girl through a friend and although at that time she had another job, from time to time she would come over and just hang out with us; she taught us how to do henna. This fall she is doing her student teaching (GAU) and asked if she could come and hang out one afternoon each week. We were all excited. Every Friday she comes to help Dean and I with Turkish then she does crafts/games with the kids. Recently she started coming on Wednesday mornings to do more Turkish lessons with us. It’s been so fun to get to know her more and share life more regularly with her as she’s been an unexpected gift to all of us this year.
