First Day of School!!

Hej guys!
Today was my first day of school! I have this HUGE headache right now from hearing ONLY danish ALL day at school.. haha. It wasn't too bad, actually. I'm taking dansk (danish), historie (history), engelsk (english), indræt (gym), fremmedsprog (a foreign language which I haven't chosen yet), fysik (physics), oltidskundskab (like old greek history), kemi (chemistry), religon psykologi (psycology if that's how you spell it), and samfundstag (which is like danish culture and sociology almost). Today I only had 4 classes: religon, psykologi, dansk, and kemi. Apparently you check your schedule online every day because the schedule is different every day and every week. It's crazy, really. But I don't have my log in yet so I can't check online until I get the log in at school tomorrow. But these are the classes that every one in 2nd year takes. Period. I'm in class 2.a. but there are many year 2 classes. The kids in my class were SO nice and helpful! I made a few friends and one girl I met named Nicka invited me to the school party at somebuilding about 5 kilos away on Friday. I'm really excited! But for those of you that don't already know, the drinking age in Denmark is 16 and although the kids here are very responsible they still drink and have TONS of parties for school and private parties. It's just what teenagers do here. But anyway.. I actually went with Shannon to school on Tuesday which was fun! Seeing a different school.. Then we went back to Bjarke's house where she's staying and made PASTA.. mmmmmm.. That's Bjarke and Shannon in Bjarke's kitchen. But yeah, we had fun making pasta.. and it was soooo good so I ate way to much. OH!! And I took a picture of that church where there was a wedding! except it was almost dark, but I think it's just gorgeous.. too pretty to be real.. haha. But here's a picture for you! Okay, I'm gonna go! I'm so glad that you are all reading my blog! I hope you like it! And let me know if you have any suggestions about how to make it better!
LOOOVE,
Francine

Ok, I know the drinking age is 16, but I'm STILL your mother, and .... well.... you shouldn't drink. It's bad for you! Ha! :) OK, this would be one of those "do as I say, not as I do" moments! Anyway, if you do..... just don't leave your drink unattended when you go to the bathroom. :)
Love you..... Mom

Congratulations on surviving your first day! It sounds like it's going to be a very busy (and interesting) year. I can't imagine what it would be like to have everyone around me speaking a different language. Can you understand it at all yet? As your mother could confirm, if I had to work that hard to figure out which class to go to... I just wouldn't have gone. Ah, the good old days! :) What's the time difference between us?

Love, Sayhey

Sorry mom! I'm planning on drinking.. and of course I'll watch my drink! haha.. The time difference is 10 hours ahead from Alaska and 6 hours ahead from the east coast. And no- i understand NO dansk aside from a few words and sentences haha..
