The students from Marseille arrived at Detroit Metro Airport on schedule Thursday afternoon.Read MoreDespite a strange mix of weather that involved snow, thunder, and lightning early in the afternoon, which was followed by late afternoon rain. So essentially the French students walked into the welcoming arms of Michigan's "snow cone world". It's probably hard for these children to understand why human beings would live in a place so slushy, wet, and cold. It must seem like they've landed on the dark side of the moon! We're so pleased and honored to have this group of students in our lives for 2 short weeks. Everyone has gotten a night of rest in their host family's home and woke up Friday morning to the announcement of "No School". Once again the weather is trying to get all the attention. There is no school today because the slush and rain from yesterday froze in the night leaving icy road conditions too dangerous for bus travel. So it's another long weekend and our French Students are living the school life of 2014 Michigan Students. They're rolling with the reality of an uncertain school schedule and the love-hate relationship we experience with weather. A little bad weather (or a lot) doesn't keep us down for long. Tonight we all gather for a 4th of July Themed Welcoming Potluck. Since summer won't come to us in February we'll create our own!

One quick correction. The roads are so icey we had to postpone our first potluck.

One of the many qualities about Nelson Mandela that impressed me was his capacity to forgive:Read More&ldqu o;As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison.”
