After we left the Greek Festival, we went and made a visit to our State Capital. It was such a nice evening. The temperature has finally cooled off. Jamie, Alex, and Megan ran all the way to top of the steps. Kynn and I just watched. :)

Our appetizer. The famous Bloomin' OnionBloomin' Onions are tasty, just ask Marlene. Spencer's annual gift of a nutcracker from Aunt Cynthia. This year he received a pirate, and some cash!! I think all college students LOVE cash. As a matter of fact, mother's of college students LOVE cash.
Our first born is 21.

He had a good night and enjoyed meeting some of Jamie's friends. Today, he went to school with Marion Crane, and I joined them to get him registered in school. We toured the school and he knows where his classrooms are located. On the way home from school, we stopped by my sister's house, Cynthia, so he could meet his host aunt. :) He'll have more family than he'll want by the time this is all over with. We will shop this weekend for a phone card, so he can stay in touch with his momma. I tell him that is VERY important. :) Also, he will buy some shorts for his weight training class at school. He will return to Brazil with some BIG muscles.
Alex has had a good day. He smiles a lot and continues to ask very intelligent questions. We are glad that he is here. It is raining a little today, as a result of Hurricane Hanna. We plan to be outside tomorrow to meet the neighbors.
We are sure we have many fun times ahead of us with Alex.

Columbia Metropolitan Airport
Our family is pleased to have a foreign exchange student living with us for the next 5 months. Alexandre is 16 years old and will be attending High School. He had a long flight from Brazil and we know that he is very tired tonight. He is watching his first Carolina Football game. We had a gamecock t-shirt and hat waiting for him when he got here. Tomorrow we will get him registered for classes and show him around the city.
