Autumn, a season that teaches that change can be beautiful! -Unknown

Here are photos of what our exchange students have been up to during this Fall/Halloween season. American traditions during this time of year include costume parties, visiting a pumpkin patches, pumpkin decorating/carving/painting, and even seeing the leaves change color (sometimes for the first time!). We can’t wait to see what your plans are for Thanksgiving and the winter season!
