Meet Laura from France (third from left) and Elina from Germany on the far right. We hosted them in 2016, just weeks after my mom moved to Atascadero from Kansas. Though I'd been hosting for many years and they had the opportunity to meet some of the leaders and students we hosted, this was the first time we hosted all living together in the same house.
Elina arrived a week before Laura and my parents weren't sold on having two students. In the end, they agreed and ever since they've been huge proponents of hosting two students at once (both girls were wonderful, as all the students we've hosted--there's just something about having two teens that can go out and about together and I LOVED hearing the girls giggling from their room).
Every summer my girl gives up her room, sometimes even sleeping on my floor to make room for our students.
This summer we still have 60 students and 5 leaders still in need of the BEST host families (that's you, right?) to welcome students from China, France, Hong Kong & Italy for 2-4 weeks this July & August. Follow the link in bio to find out how you can join my family in expanding our family. We will have buses picking up students in San Luis Obispo, Los Osos, Morro Bay, Santa Margarita, Atascadero, Paso Robles and San Miguel--the study center is in Templeton.
