We celebrated Gaute's birthday this week. He turned 17 years old. He is our exchange student from Norway. We feel privileged to have him in our home. He is like one of our own kids. It is amazing how quickly you can really care for someone. We want this to be a positive experience for him and desire that we make our home a warm and friendly place.
The above photo is a gift that we gave him an Indiana t-shirt, and of course we got him a Grace Community hooded-sweatshirt. Last night we cheered for him at his first Varsity Football Game. He did a super job as the place-kicker. He is quickly adjusting to being a Brown, just this morning he got a new pair of Basketball shoes from Eastbay.
Here he is on the sidelines #91...
Oh yeah, here is a photo we snapped on his birthday with the rest of the Browns. He sure could pass for one of our kids.
Happy Birthday Gaute!
