Hi, On monday everything went well in school and in the afternoon. After dinner we headed back to the school because Any (my Global Outreach sister from the Czech Republic) had a choir performance, a concert. She did really well. They performed a lot of beautiful songs. I did a video from the whole thing, so we have this memory saved. I also discovered that tea can keep me warm in these cold days in the morning, so I decided to bring tea with me everyday to school and it´s really good.
On Tuesday I tried the S´mores poptards for breakfast, because Joan (our host mother) bought them for us. We told Joan first week that we like poptards and since then she have bought us every week, she is so generous. I like them but not as much as I like the cinnamon ones. On Tuesday the principal came and watched our religion class, first I didn´t even recognise that he is there. This happened also on Tuesday, we had study hall during speech lesson and I decided to talk to my mother, because I didn´t have time on the weekend. So I called her on skype and when my teacher heard that it´s my mother, he wanted to talk to her. And he told her how good my Cinderella speech was, because last week we had an assignement where we had to choose a moovie and perform a little scene by our own. I chose cinderella and my techer loved it. Of course she was really happy, she told it everyone at home.
On Wednesday nothing special happened, it was just a regular school day.
On Thursday I ate caramell apple for the first time in my life, because Joan surprised us with one each. Fisrt I didn´t like it, because I just tasted a little caramell drop from the stick, but after that it was really delicious. It was sooooo good!!! In the afternoon I went back to school for a volleyball game, but Any had to stay at home because she got sick. The game was really exciting but luckily our school team won. Our Varsity team is really good, they won state the last two years. And they have a big chance to win this year too.
On friday we were supposed to go to a haunted house but it got cancelled, so we just stayed at home and had some fun time.
I did a huge accomplishment I walked home from school it was 11 kilometers and it took me 2 hours. I was really proud of myself. Unfortunately it was raining so as you can guess I got really sick after my adventure. So I spent my whole saturday in bed because I was sick. I know unlucky for me.
But at the weekend we did a lot of fun stuff with Joan. We painted christmass ornaments for a "game tree". This is some kind of a fundraiser. Everybody who signed up chooses a topic and then makes a tree related to that topic. We chose "Games". We also did a lot of perler beads stuff because we decided to do a "story book" tree as well.
On Sunday we went to Church and after that Joan took us to her favorite breakfast place. It was awesome. The whole restaurant reminded me of Luke´s diner from Gilmore Girls. I really loved it and Any as well. We both ate belgium Waffles, which were huge. We ate them with ice cream and starwberries, it was a dream. Sadly I don´t have any pictures about them because I left my phone at home, because I never take it to Church. In the afternoon I cleaned my room and talked to my family. In the evening David (one of my host brothers) came over and we played board games. we had a lots of fun.
This was my blog for the week I hope you liked it!!!
