Everyone, meet Tekashi....he was our Japanese exchange student back in the day. Not sure how this exactly started but one summer when I was in about 5th grade my Mom announced that we would be having a Japanese exchange student come stay with us for a month. We did this for two years in a row. Guy lived in our guestroom. He was gone most of the time at events and classes with other exchange students. But then there would also be weekly host family events too. Since we lived in Nor Cal at the time, one of the family events was a day at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Here we are waiting in line for a ride with me, my Mom, my brother, Tekashi and his gal friend also in the exchange student program. Wonder what Tekashi is up to these days????
