Fresh Air Fund

We're expanding our family for two weeks this summer! We have applied to be a Fresh Air Fund host family, and we have been matched with a 7 year old girl named Yvette. She lives in the Bronx in New York City.

From their website:http://www.freshair.org/default.aspx
"Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund has been giving inner-city children the joy of a summer vacation with volunteer host families and at Fund camps, creating unforgettable memories and fresh possibilities."

We are very excited, and already have been thinking about the day trips we can take Yvette on, and different experiences that we take for granted that may be new for her. She will be sleeping in Emmi's room, on a futon, and Emmi is pretty pleased that she'll have a girl to play with!

Yvette's visit will be in July, so stay tuned for more details!
