Hey there

Another week have passet and so far so good.
This week was a little better but the weather is so not with us right now, but we at least managed to have a whole day outside on the Monday, so
we took a long walk to a place called Georgetown, that it's a very nice area in DC .
We had a stop on the way at this really nice playground who had this huge sandbox that was really fun for the kids.

Down in Georgetown we walked by the Swedish embassy , it is by this amazing place by the lake and close to a park where we had picnic and looked at the ducks and just relaxed.

So we had a really the good start of the week.
Then it's start to rain for the rest of the days so the hole week got kind of boring because you have to figure out where to go and plan so much more.
But we went too two different library's nearby for some story times and play, the one library was shaw Howard and the other one was Martin Luther King library in china town that i prefer.
The staff is so nice with the kids and very helpful and understandable when you have some situations.

They have this good play "room" in there, and one of the things they have is this wall with different types of locks and similar stuff so they can train on their motor skills and of course the sharing with the other kids.


Other than that it's just the weekend who was pretty calm.
I went out on Friday night to some bars so it was nice and just fun to meet up and get to know people.
Me and the host family had a calm Saturday,
we went to some different indoor markets and I finally got the chance to try oysters, so good! it's always fun to try new things.

Today I had brunch with some of my Au Pair friends, so nice to meet and catch up with them,
after i went to my monthly Au Pair meeting with my Lcc who is our personal contact here in DC.

So things are so good and I have been in such a good mood theses last days because I'm starting to plan some vacations and smaller trips that I'm really looking forward to.

So here again,
This about to be an Au Pair is so the best thing you can do to figure out how strong you are, because, you just moved here by your self you have to meet new people, new kids and you have to find you're self with the language and in this new home. I had some trouble in the beginning because I started to get so shy and i don't have the best confident so i had some trouble to
start a conversation and it was kind of awkward. But the time goes and it gets better and you get more confident and start to take some more chances.

even if it is the smallest steps it's in the right direction

So my week was very boring actually because of the weather so it was kind of bad, we like to be outdoors in the difference parks or go to the zoo.
But we went to national museum of national history that I enjoy to of because it's kids friendly, and with small kids it's pretty hard to get them interesting in something for a longer time so this is a good option.
And then one day we had a play date with an other Au Pair friend, it was pretty nice because I'm by myself the hole days with the kiddies so it's nice to have a grown up to talk to while he kids are playing.
Other than that's it's the ordinary household and playing, trips to different library's for story times.
so that's pretty much it


It's totally worth to do a journey like this, after six weeks and i have already got so much more confident and a brighter future because I start to figure out what I want to do.

Time to start write again, I'm gonna write on English from now on to train on my writing and so everyone I know can understand.
More than I moth have already passed and it's so amazing that's I got with this great family and I live in the middle of DC so I'm living the dream.
And I didn't write in the first time here because I had to settle down and really concentrate on the things. But better late than never.

And so much has happened the last weeks, I've been on so many nice places here in DC, I've cut my hair off and so on..

So this is gonna be kind of a short text but I'm gonna write some more about how my day's are with the kids and where we go.

So talk to you later

Finally Àr jag pÄ vÀg! KÀnns fortfarande sÄ otroligt overkligt att lilla jag sitter pÄ ett plan till USA just precis nu och Àr inte ens nervös. (Kan bero pÄ sömnbristen ) men sÄ sjukt skönt att vara kunna sitta och slappa pÄ planet och kunna andas igen, har varit sÄ rÀtt jobbiga dagar nu innan avresan sÄsom packning och sÀga hej dÄ till alla och bara rent panikslagen.
Men nu Àr jag pÄ vÀg pÄ mitt livs största resa och det kÀnns sÄÄ bra och avslappnat just nu.

Börjar bli lite smÄ uttrÄkad nu nÀr det bara Àr tvÄ timmar kvar tills jag landar. Ska bli sÄ spÀnnande att landa i Newyork att fÄ trÀffa alla andra aupairer, fÄ se skolan vi ska bo pÄ nu första veckan och mest av allt tills pÄ fredag dÄ jag fÄr trÀffa familjen pÄ riktigt.

HallÄ,
Hade verkligen en underbar helg med lite avskedsfest för familjen "saknades dock nÄgra"
Men jag Àr sÄ otroligt glad att vi fick till en kvÀll dÀr de flesta kunde vara med, det var alldeles för mÄnga Är sedan sist.
Det kÀnns mycket bÀttre efterÄt och lite mer avslappnat inför resan nu nÀr man hunnit fÄ nÄgra hej dÄ kramar och lite ny energi.

Nu Àr det bara 13 dagar kvar för avgÄng till New York, paniken börjar uppstÄ med allt som ska bli gjort innan (sÄ mycket att göra men sÄ kort tid) stÀmmer rÀtt bra in just nu. Men alla papper sÄ som internationellt körkort och visum Àr iaf avklarat sÄ jag har det viktigare för att fÄ komma in i landet.

InsÄg ocksÄ idag hur mycket jag faktiskt kommer sakna utsikten hÀr hemma pÄ vÀstkusten att kunna sitta i bilen och Àta lunch och bara se havet och höra fiskmÄsarnas jobbiga skrik. Men förhoppningsvis kommer det finnas nÄtt jag tycker om mer eller lika mycket i Washington :)

BĂ€ttre uppdatering kommer det ocksĂ„ bli nu nĂ€r allt lugnat sig âœđŸ»

Börjar med att jag Startar denna bloggen för att ha lite som en dagbok att se tillbaka pÄ, och sÄklart dela med mig av mina tankar och reflektioner under min tid som aupair i USA. OcksÄ sÄ att familj, vÀnner och dom som vill kan följa med lite pÄ vad som hÀnder innan och under tiden :)

Jag har tidigare jobbat som barnflicka som var liknande ett aupair jobb fast i Norge och dÀr var det sÄ mycket mer att göra, och eftersom det inte fick ett sÄ bra avslut sÄ var verkligen detta det sista jag trodde jag skulle vÄga ge mig in pÄ. Att söka som aupair och inte minst till USA, men trots allt detta gjorde jag en ansökan till cultural care aupair programmet och jag förvÀntade mig inte att det skulle ta sÄn fart som det gjorde..

Men sÄ nu knappt tvÄ mÄnader efter intresseanmÀlan,
sÄ sitter jag hÀr med en fÀrdig ansökan, flygbiljett och sÄklart en familj som vÀntar.
Allt har gÄtt sÄ ofattbart fort sÄ det Àr vÀldigt mycket att hinna med och mycket att förbereda sig mentalt för och det allra vÀrsta att behöva Äka ifrÄn familj och vÀnner sÄ lÀnge och inte kunna fly hem nÀr det blir motgÄngar.
Men jag vet att detta kommer stÀrka mig sÄ mycket mer som person och jag kommer lÀra mig sÄ otroligt mycket i bÄde lÀtta och svÄra situationer.

Jag Àr sÄ glad att jag vÄgar !
