This weekend it is a 3 day weekend and it feels so good. This because it is 4th of July, as I mentioned in the last post. I am really exited about it. On Friday we are going to prepare the food until Saturday and the whole family is going to help, so it´s gonna be cozy to do it all together. I look forward to Saturday the most of course. I mean how nice with some celebrate? I love firework as well and we are going to buy some at Friday before cooking the food. The special thing we are going to do is get in to the city where they shoot lots of rockets and have guests.
However, I´ve started to feel a little homesick. It is fun here and I feel comfortable with the host-family, but I miss home as well. It do feel a little bit better when I talk with them over phone, but it is not the same thing as seeing them in real life. I wish I could be with them now, I just want to hug them and like go home now. I did not thought that I was going to get homesick but i did and it feel pretty hard sometimes, in some situations. When I hang out with my friends and training, I dot think about it, so I guess that is what I should do to get on other thoughts. I know I like it here and that it is normal to get homesick, so even if tree month feel a long time now I know I will get through it, and when I comes home , I probably just want to go back here again.
The family decided to get a pet and they let me help them to pick which one they should take. I am an allergic to fur but I have medicines, so it is gonna be fine anyway, and I love animals so it´s going to be fun. I got happy when they told me I could help them to pick and I wanted them to buy a puppy so they did. This helps me to think on something else and I really feel like a part of the family.
I think I am going to call my family on face-time now, then play with the new puppy (Lea) and them go to bed. :)
This is what I use to talk with my family and the picture at the right is our new puppy.
