Now I’m here for more than nine months, and my time left is going very fast. Right now I’m still living with the Lopez family, and they are like a real family for me. I’m doing so many fun things on their farm. I like doing my homework outside, horseback riding and driving a four-wheeler around. I had so much fun making “Spätzle” (a popular German meal) for my host family.
Easter also was a really fun time for me. It is pretty similar to Easter in Germany. First we went to church, then we had a meal with the whole family, and then we went hiking on a field.
I also went to a Timberwolves game with the Lopezes. The atmosphere in Target Center was awesome, and it was exciting to see such a good basketball game. Of course, we also went to the Mall of America in Minneapolis, and I had a great time.
This quarter I did track as a sport. At the beginning it was really hard for me to keep up with everyone because I was not used to running,but with practice I improved. I did long-distance running and pole vaulting. I enjoyed getting to know the coaches and all of my teammates. This was my first time doing something like this, but I may continue in Germany.
One of my highlights of the whole year was definitely prom. We don’t have anything like that in Germany. I enjoyed everything about it — like picking out a dress, going through the grand march, the dance and the hypnotist.
I can’t believe my school year is almost over! It went by so fast, and I learned so much about my different classes and about American high schools.
I am excited for my family to come to Worthington June 3, and they are eager to meet everyone I have gotten to know.
It was so awesome to get to know everyone here in Worthington, especially because everyone is so nice here and helped me with every little problem I had. I can’t believe I’ll have to go back so soon, and I wish I could stay another year.
Thank you to the whole town of Worthington for making my year the best I could imagine!
