Friday, we went to meet my family. We had a nice time. My Pap discussed his time in the Army which included a stint in Germany. We went out to lunch. It was interesting trying to explain what mayonnaise was to J. I finally just said you like having it on turkey sandwiches at home, so he told the waitress he waned it on his sub. My father was impressed with the amount of food J can eat. He was the only one to finish off his lunch. We came home, and L took J to the school for an open house. J got his schedule and then, went up to the football scrimmage. His schedule isn't bad. It will be interesting to see how challenging it is for him. He had had most of the classes that the school offers, so the counselor did the best she could to get him a schedule. He also got a personal tour of the school from some girls. For those who have actually seen J, that should not be a surprise. He came with a few phone numbers.
On Saturday, we all went to meet L's parents and family friends of theirs at a fiddle competition. This was being held at an farm where everything is still done the old way. T liked running around and seeing the animals there. The fiddle competition was nice. Although, I think the judging was rigged or something because the person that was best by far didn't even place. We did get to see a couple nickelharpas. These are Swedish instruments. I learned from the Viking in SC's host mom that they are related to the hurdy gurdy. We thought it would be fun just to say we went to hurdy gurdy concert.
Yesterday, my sisters, borther-in-law, mom, and niece came to visit us. We had many laughs. J had my sister believing that he didn't have electricity at his home in Germany. He also fit right in by making fun of everybody. Last night we just relaxed as J starts school today. This morning I dropped him off since the bus owner never called me back to tell me what time J gets picked up. It should be interesting to see how his first day of class went.
