Hi everyone! i'll write this blog in english so all of you can take part of my experience :)
A month has now passed since my last update and it has consisted of rain, a lot of rain. Hahah not only but to start with we had "the storm of the decade" as they said it was going to be altough it turned out to be a little windy weekend with a bit of rain. That was qiute a dissapointment. MI played against Bellevue that weekend and they kicked our butts and won 64-7. We left in halftime and went to chipotle for some tacos instead. That weekend was also the first weekend at my "host dads" new house down by the water on east mercer way.
The week after that we had our last XC meet and it felt pretty good that the XC season was over because you get a bit tired of running if you do it every day although we had a great team with a lot of fun people. We also had our last home football game and it was all band night and seniors night so that was cool. The moshpit was super big after the game cause all the seniors in the band joined, that was awesome.
Then the following two weeks rolled by pretty quite, I couldn't play soccer cause my right leg was hurting wich wasn't that fun. It rained constanly for these two weeks aswell hahah. We did get lost in a corn maze in the dark though, haha that was quite interesting.
The next monday it was halloween, we went to some family friends house out in Issaqua. There we spent the night outside handing out candy and hot chocolate to children and parents. There were soo much people there, it was insane.
Then the week went by and last weekend Gretchens brother came to visit from oregon. He was here to row i think. This week was the big election week. Gretchens mom came to us on Tuesday and we followed the election toghether. She couldn't believe that Trump won. This weekend we had an extra day of because it was veterans day on friday wich was awesome. We alsa had a veterans day assembly to honor the veterans. On Wednesdays we had the XC banquet at the high school where we had dinner and they gave out tons of awards and diplomas. It was great and a lot of fun and the official ending of the XC season. The team was awesome and we all had a great time on every practice. The weekend was great, on thursday after school I went with a friend to work out at the beachclub then we went in to an amazing real texas BBQ place in seattle called Jacks BBQ. It was probably one of the best BBQ places I've ever been to. After that I went to a "throwback to middle school" dance with some friends and then we went home to a friends house and watched some netflix. On friday we went to a cool asian grocerie store in the china town and we bought sushi ingredients. Then I went for a bike ride to get some excercise and then later in the evening I went to a friends giant house with some people from the XC team and we hung out there. That was a lot of fun! Yesterday morning I went out with my soccer team to play the semifinal in the district cup. We won but unfortunatly I couldn't play that much because my back was hurting. We made awesome sushi for dinner and then I met up with a friend from the soccer team and we hung out for a while. Today I woke up at around 11.30 and after my breakfast I went down to the soccer field by the middle school to watch my team play. We won with 3-2. At 5.30 ish I went to a friend to watch the sunday night football game. It was seahawks against NE patriots. The seahawks won but it was a super tight game!
yeah I guess that sums up the last month. Hope you guys have a great time at home and I want you to know that i'm thinking about you every day.
Big hugs from Mercer Island
