Hey guys not forgetting you all, I am just super busy. No joke my poor mother probably got an email from me today that was shorter than this. Plan to update you all with lots of info soon, but for now here's the jist:
-France is very different, and awesome.
-Had some serious homesickness recently, but now, LOVING IT here.
-Made lots of new amazing friends, and my courses are challenging, but interesting at the same time. (well most of them, give me some credit I am a teenager...) :)
-My host family is AMAZING, so lucky to have them!
-Have plans with my theater class and friends this week, and I am so excited for them.
-And finally, yes French food IS that good.
Guess that's it for now!
Off to study for my scene in theater tomorrow!

Me and my AYUSA friend, Casey! Check out her blog (it's so good) @ http://thefrenchduckling.tumblr.com/
The next day ( I slept in until 12) we had a huge lunch (typical in France) and I met Simon, Eva and Baptiste's babysitter who is a senior at my school. He was so nice and helpful, and I was so fortunate my host family introduced me to him. We went to the mountain of "insert town name here" (internet safety sorry....) and saw all of the city, it was gorgeous! I could see my lycee from there! (I can see it from my window too, its HUGE) Later that evening we went biking and sat in a cafe, where they played the Beatles, (thank gosh :) and then later went home.
Today, I woke up (still really late) and we went to the indoor pool. It was so much fun playing with the little ones, my host family is great and so helpful. After we biked home (we bike everywhere) we had lunch and I played with Baptiste and Eva for a while. They are now napping, so I am writing this poorly written blog post! Ok so a couple random things...
1) My french is awful, they say its good, but I highly doubt that. I can somewhat communicate and understand when one person is talking directly to me, but if I am trying to listen to a conversation, I can get a little lost.
2) Random facts: They do have armoires in France. They are awesome. Also, when you learn in Franch class that they have like a 5 course meal all the time, they are not joking. First you have an appitizer, then a main course, then cheese, and then dessert, and sometimes a course for chocolate. Its great :)
3) Wi-Fi in France is pronounced, weee-feee, and it makes my day. :)
I guess that's it for now. Love and miss you all!
