We are back from a sun filled week in Florida, I have come to the conclusion that a beach week is good for the soul and can fix just about anything.
But now it is back to reality which is dirty laundry, unread mail, suitcases to put away, groceries to buy, and we need to get ready for our exchange student who comes tomorrow.
The great thing about having our exchange student is that I feel like I am going to all the great places our city has to offer, that I take for granted because I live here. I want our exchange student to go home and feel like he truly knows St. Louis.
Top of our list..
take him to the top of the arch
we have one of the best zoos in the country
home of the famous Clydesdales
The City Museum
one of the best children's museums in the country
A segwey tour of the city
Our exchange student loves blues music and as luck would have it BB King will be here next week so we are taking him his concert
and to a restaurant dedicated to blues where Chuck Barry is a barfly and has been known to give impromptu concerts
and of course some of our locally famous dining establishments
I love that I am rediscovering my city, too bad it took an exchange student form Ireland to motivate me!!
