When my daughter, Kara, was an exchange student to Belgium her junior year none of us
realized what a huge impact that experience would have on her life. She has married a Belgium
man, has a lovely home on the river in a small country town outside of Brussels and works for
SWIFT in the public relations department.

It is difficult to stay up-to-date on where she is in the world at any given time. However, for the next week she will be home, here in Vancouver, Washington. When she called from the Newark airport in New Jersey she said "Flexibility is the word for this week." We are not sure what our activities will be; yet, there are a couple of things I have helped put on the agenda.

Waiting for her upon her arrival is a dinner of spareribs and sweet corn. One evening is devoted to Mexican food and another a good old fashion American barbecue. I've learned what foods she misses.

She has agreed to help me clean the garage. Just maybe we can get some more shelves free to "store" things from her past. Shopping is on the agenda and one day we are going to take off and explore the world in our area.

In case, you haven't guessed it, I've viewing this as a mini vacation. The weather is cooperating and I'm going to suggest we go to breakfast on a floating cafe tomorrow morning.
