I am in the states for exactly one month and two days now. So far everything is going fine. My workdays are good and the boys P and L are adorable and behave good - for the most time. I get along perfect with my host-parents, they are truly nice and amazing people.
What have I done so far? I met up with Annie, a friend whom I met via twitter because we liked the same show and somehow it turned out that we live kinda close bye here in the states. Isn't that awesome? We went to Six Flags America and had a fantastic day.
I also have spent a day in Washington, DC. with Damaris, another Au Pair who I've met here. We rented bikes and drove through the city - trying to catch all of the tourist spots. It's such a beautiful city and I am definitely gonna be there more often since it's only one hour away from here.
Some of my free time was spent with Anna, she lives really close bye and I met her in the training school in NY. Once we had brunch at hers, we went shopping, went to the cheesecake factory and to the Annapolis harbor. It's so lovely here. Yesterday we actually were cooking for my host mom and we had a lot of fun. So glad I met here and that she lives close to me.
What else can I tell you.... Right, my hostfamily took me on vocation with them. We spent a few days up in Beach Haven, New Jersey with the family of my host-dad. It was amazing. Beautiful beach city, really nice beaches, warm weather, good seefood and a lot of friendly people. I have to admit, it's weird to be on vocation with a strange family but they were super nice to me and included me in everything. We spent the most time on the beach, listened to country music and went out for dinner - I got a little mad that I wasn't allowed to pay for anything at all... not even ice cream hahah - I drove home with my host-mom earlier because she had to work but my host-dad and the kids are still there so I have some free time. yeeeey

PS: My host.-mom made me obsessed with "Chicken Fried" from Zac Brown. It's a country song and I kind of listen to it non-stop.
