I am posting something a little different today. I love the bluegrass sound and the banjo in this song; it just makes me feel like swaying along to the music when I listen.
It is also the perfect song for a goodbye. Our exchange student is heading back home to Singapore this evening. It has been quite an experience for all of us. He is heading home on crutches with a sprained ankle, a hacking cough and cold, and a thousand shopping bags full of things he “just had to have.”
It is interesting when you have someone stay with you from a different country. We have so much in common and yet there are so many things that are just uniquely different. Many of the things that we think are so normal in our country are just so foreign in Singapore life, and vice versa. It has been a great experience for my son and I hope that the two boys will stay in contact for many years to come.
In talking to all 11 boys last night, I can tell you one thing they won’t miss … hamburgers. It makes me laugh that everyone thought they needed to experience Shake Shack and McDonald’s. By about day three, they were just ready for some good old Chinese food.
