We were all anxious to meet her room mate. She is Fangfei Li (pronounced Fong-fay but she said call her Fay.) She comes from Beijing and is at Hockaday for a one year exchange program. While I have felt bad about leaving Madeline at boarding school I realize that she will have it pretty good. We are here for most of her first week, we'll be visiting Dallas, she'll come to Kazakhstan, Christmas will be spent together, and she has family and a house around the corner. Fay got here two days ago with two suitcases, will stay with a host family for all school breaks and won't see her family again until May. I think Madeline will be okay.
Frank worried about her all night and called first thing this morning to see how things went. She was racing off to cheerleading and didn't have time to chit chat. I think she is pretty unconcerned about making us feel comfortable with the whole thing!! She did say she's going to have a hard time getting used to sleeping in a twin bed. It's a tough life.
