Oh Sheep!


We have FINALLY made the long awaited journey. It felt like it took forever to get here but now that we are here it doesn't feel any different from home. 

Our flights were great! They went by quick and were utterly painless. Everyone at the airport was willing to help us Kentucky folk find their way around. Chicago airport blew our minds. Once we got off the plane the first quote that came to mind was "We are not in Kansas anymore". This quote was said many times throughout the trip because it was unreal how different things where in different places. 

On the way to Westport we traveled by train. This was a wonderful experience. As we traveled across the country we noticed how much it looked like home. Rolling hills, green grass, a lots of farms. 

One item that we noticed the most were the amount of sheep this country has. Every few minutes we would pass by another sheep farm. As we watched the sheep we noticed that some had different fur colors, some had different head colors, and some where spray painted different colors. We had many questions about the sheep as we traveled on to Westport. 

Once we arrived in Westport we were greeted by our host family. A cute little family that met us at the door and welcomed us in. When we arrived they had sweets and some groceries waiting for is which was nice seeing as we had lived on snacks, airplane food, and coffee. From here we got to tour the town which is small and sweet. Everyone seems so friendly and willing to help out (it reminded me a lot of Bowling Green). From here we went and got some other groceries and then got settled in. 

We are settling in and finding our way around but I think we are really going to like it here! Tomorrow we start our first placement. I can't wait to meet the students and see the difference in school systems. 

Love always,
