My in-laws are coming to visit next week. They arrive on the 20th and are here for 3 weeks. We told them it would be warm whilst they are here. I checked the forecast earlier and this is what it said. Bit warmer than England I imagine. With 100F temperatures, I don't think anyone will be complaining about a little bit of rain.

Schools Out & Summer is Here.

The kids have settled into their new school well and have made friends easily. Kids always seem to do better than the grown ups.

K was in a reading program, like she was in Carmel, to help with her reading as she was not quite reading at Grade level. She came home on the last day of school and had her progress report saying that she was reading at 2nd Grade level. This was fantastic news.

I am aware of the searches that are done on Google that bring people to my blog but have been wondering if there is anything specific that people would like to know about, in relation to being an Expat in America.

If anyone has anything they would like to know, post it in the comment section or on Facebook and I will, perhaps, write about it in a future post.
