Maybe try some baby oil or vaseline??? It might help remove what's on it and will help moisterize his skin too.
ON ANOTHER NOTE:
We are VERY EXCITED. We signed up to be friendship sponsors to foreign students at Furman University. Basically we just meet the 2 students we are paired with and we have them over for dinner a couple times a month, take them with us when we go to stuff (like apple picking or the fall festival), invite them to church events, basically just make friends with them and hang out with them occasionally. These are students that are a long way from home and family and want to have families here to do things with and get more of the "American" experience than they get in the Dorms. Many stay here for the holidays, so they want to experience American Thanksgiving and Christmas, they say they even don't mind helping out doing chores and stuff. Anyway, its going to be fun I think. We get to meet college age kids from other cultures and help them and learn from them too.
The seminar I went too, one woman said that the student they were paired with for 4 years, when she went home and got married, her family sent airline tickets and paid hotel accomdations so they could come to her wedding.
Not that we are doing it for a free trip, but it was nice to hear that you can make connections that run deep.
The seminar spokesman said that there are 500,000 foreign students in the US and that many of these people go back to their countries and become leaders in business and government and he recited several heads of state and big business that studied in the US.
I just think its exciting to meet someone from another culture and share our culture and make friends with them and help be a surrogate family.
They will still live in the dorm and go to school, but they will became a part of our family and we will get to do stuff with them and show them our country and our customs that they may not get living exclusively in the dorms.
They are calling back this afternoon to tell us when and where we get to meet our students and what countries they are from.
I'll let you know. I think this is going to be a wonderful experience.
