We didn’t plan on things happening this way. But it did. An email, a mad dash to get our paperwork done, and boom. We’re parents.
In under 24 hours, we’ll go from being a family of 2 to a family of 3. In typical Emily fashion, I’ve waited til the very last minute to tell anyone. In fact, we only made the decision to become a family of 3 last Monday.
You see, tomorrow, our AFS (American Field Services) foreign exchange student arrives. I’m equal parts nervous and excited, which is, I suppose, to be expected.
In the past 72 hours or so, we’ve gone from having an empty spare room to having a room for a 16 year old boy from France. We’ll call him S, since I doubt he wants his life spread out all over the internet.
If I’m a little slow to respond, if things have been a little quiet around here, you know why.
In the meantime: here are some scans from our trip to Portland back in April. Wandering around the city, in Powells, and touring Pittock Mansion.
They’re all shot on Portra 400, which is a dream, and with my 1980’s 35mm camera. Developed at the FIND Lab. I’ve got more to show you from other places too. Be prepared!
