Living in Vegas has taught us a few things and winning big is our favorite. We weren't expecting to take another exchange student because we didn't think anyone could match our family as well as Paula did, but when the paperwork came and we read Annie's bio, Dan and I just knew it was another match made in heaven. The Swedish magic continues as this year we are taking a wonderful Swede named Annie Ferdinandsson from Varekil, Orust Sweden. Many of you will not be able to pronounce the name of her town correctly but hey for those who can I put it in there just for you. Annie is from an island just north of Gothenberg on the west coast of Sweden.
She will be a senior this year at Shadow Ridge High School. Once we made the decision we have been excitedly waiting for her to arrive. We were able to skype with her and her family and my Swedish skills were on full display as her family and I skyped mostly in Swedish! She comes from a wonderful family and can't wait to enjoy the next 10 months with her!
Here are some pictures of us picking her up at the airport and introducing her to the Las Vegas Strip!
