Three boys are excited about their new school, but find it very different from what they are used to. The Skorbinskis come from Port Elizabeth Eastern Cape, South Africa. Donavan is an eighth grader, Danre is in fourth grade, and Duhan is in preschool.
Their father is an employee of Chad Olsen Custom Farms. The family recently moved to Hendricks to begin life here in the United States. They are still getting used to the safety factor of the community. In South Africa the boys did not dare leave the house alone.
