The third quarter is almost over and then I have only one to go. I enjoy being here at the high school. During the last quarter I learned Spanish as a third language, and I can speak and understand it. It was not hard to learn the language because it is similar to English and German.
The last two years I recorded the Super Bowl and watched it one day later. But this time I had the chance to watch the Super Bowl and the commercials during the breaks live, and I took the chance. Because my dad has relatives in Wisconsin I cheered for the Green Bay Packers, and I was happy after they won the Super Bowl. The weekend after the Super Bowl was the state swim meet at the U of M aquatic center, and I moved on this weekend to my third host family. Now I live with Dave and Karen Skog, and I really enjoy my time here. It is also the first time I have lived in town. At the state swim meet I got third in 200 Freestyle, eighth in 100 Freestyle and 11th in 50 Freestyle, and I cut time in every single event. The last weekends I did a lot with friends, and I enjoy it to live in town now.
Now I am looking forward to when the Pep Band goes to the see the Timberwolves against the Boston Celtics, and I will join the band for this day.
