So this week so far has been average, nothing out of the norm. =) The exciting stuff will all be happening tomorrow and continue on for the next 2 weeks. So if I neglect my blog just a little, heres why...
Tomorrow I will be heading off to Kalmar, Sweden for a district gathering. I think most of the exchange students in my district will be there. we will be bowling, canoing (haha cuz the weather is so amazing, NOT!) and going to a school to talk about the exchange. This lasts until saturday, my birthday is also convenietntly in there too. =) That's right, Haley will be turning 17 in two days!
On Saturday is the big one..... drumroll please... The parents! Yup, My parents are finally making their trip here. I am super excited to see them since it has been over nine months since I last saw them. Can you believe it? Nine months? That is utterly ridiculous, I just can not fathom where all the time has gone. So we will meet up on saturday and they will saty until wednesday morning.
While my parents head off to their europe adventure, I will be somewhere a little closer to home. I get to go to Stockholm! My class is going to Stockholm on wednesday, we are going to the opera, a castle,the art museum and we also get to roam the town for the majority of the day. I am very excited for this because even though I have been in Sweden for 9 months, I haven't been to the capitol yet, shameful I know.
We then have thursday and friday off school for some random holiday, but hey, I'm not complaining.
The next week, I will be in school monday and tuesday but then I will be off to my biggest adventure yet on exchange, getting myself to Germany. Ya, I have to book all the correct plane and bus tickets, make sure I am there on time and not lost and arrive safely in Dusseldorf, Germany. I'm sure everything will be fine but I do have a tendency to get lost. I am going to Germany to once again meet up with my parents and also get to hang out with Lulu! The german exchange student my family hosted last year, I'm sure it will be a very fun visit. =)
Then I have only three short weeks until school finishes, 2 and a half weeks of break, 3 weeks of europe travel, four days of goodbyes, then tons of hellos =)
