This week I received a lot of mail. And everyday it just made me so much happier.
Yesterday at school it was burger and fries for lunch and I was so super excited. When the bell rang for lunch I bolted to the cafeteria so that I wouldn’t have to wait long in line. Well my plan was ruined and I ended up waiting an hour in line for a crappy burger with no ketchup. I tried mayonnaise with my french fries and it was really really good.
I have signed up for after school activities and Monday’s I will be playing volleyball, Wednesday’s gymnastics and Friday’s Zumba. I don’t even like sports but, they are actually kind of fun to do to keep busy. I run almost everyday and I am super excited for my race in November. I wanted to run the Paris Half Marathon, but I won’t be old enough. The French have a lot of rules.
Next week is going to be super busy as Thursday I am going on a field trip to see a theater piece called L’Avare. Friday I am going on a field trip to Paris (how cool is that?!?) to the Musee D’Orsay, the Immigration museum and to see Macbeth. On Saturday I am going to Belgium and I get to see Noah (exchange student from Canada living in Belgium for the year) and I am SO EXCITED, because he is like my big brother and we are super close! So I am in for a pretty crazy week.
School is getting a little better because I have started to make more friends which is nice. I love kissing people on the cheeks in the hallways it’s so fun. The weather here is pretty nice (mid-70’s) and I like taking walks when I don’t have any classes. It’s just so French.
Today I had a half day of school (my favourite days of the week) and I went for lunch with Abigail to her grandparents which was really nice. We picked up her brother and sister at school and I got to go inside to see what a French grade school looks like and it was so different.
Tonight a lot of people are coming for dinner because Willy is coming home and Pierre is too. It will be nice to see everyone together again! I have been alone a lot which gets lonely.
I will try to update my blog as much as possible the next week though it will be tight!
P.s I am going to the Netherlands is November!!!!
