Karen has taught us how to count to 10 I Japanese but hasn't talked much about her country. In fact she doesn't even communicate with her family out of fear she will be homesick. I'm worried about this but it seems to work for her. Our biggest surprise has been her American appetite. She is a size 1 and can eat three or four helpings of food. She loves Everything unhealthy and refers McDonald's over our favorite restaurants. Everyday she brings her own lunch to school of a Nutella sandwich, chips, and not sure what else.
She has been a breath of fresh air for our family who has felt stress I entertaining our family at the same time errands need to get done, etc. I wish she could stay forever.
