Autumn Camp!

me and my friend Peep from Thailand and me and my friend Pablo from Colombia

Hola amigos!

OK! so this weekend we had an AFS camp! We went to Stenstrup (pronounced steeeenstrop for those of you who are trying to say it) which is like 12 kilometers from my house. This camp was for the 11 kids on Fyn and 18 kids from south Sjæland. So total.. there were 29 kids plus our 4 leaders from the office in Copenhagen (in danish København) and Benthe who is in charge of AFS on Fyn. And we had such a good time! It was SOOOO much fun! I love hanging out with my exchange student friends and I'm always so happy to see them! But at the camp we played games and talked about our host families, school and friends in "group discussion" time. That was really awesome. Talking to other exchange students with similar situations and problems. It's good to talk about it.. And then Saturday night we had a WILD CRAZY PARTY! (in the words of one of our camp leaders, Andreas) haha it was SO much fun! Each group had to entertain and we had nice dinner with candles.. SO COOL! OH! and the picture of me and the hoola hoop is because Bjarke and Solvej thought i should learn how to Hoola Hoop properly (and not get fat.. gahh that's scary!) Did you know the nick name for AFS is Another Fat Student. AHH! ok.. i'm being careful mom! don't worry! hehe.. But anyway! I got a lot of people to try out my hoola hoop and it was SO funny!

Sunday Maria came and picked me up from camp and Kyla went back to Bjarke's house.. And then slept over at my house.. hehe we spend so much time together! I'm going to miss her so much when she leaves!! but enjoy my pictures!! They're all from camp this weekend! And keep reading! I PROMISE i will try to write more! haha.. love francine (this is my friend Daiki from Japan who goes to school with me in Ringe!)

Kyla in the kitchen!

Wow! You have been busy since I checked in last. Sounds like lots of excitement. I'm sorry to hear that you are homesick... a year is a long time. We all miss you, but we get to miss you "together" while you have to miss home, family and friends "alone". Hang in there though... Amanda is auditioning for Annie Jr. on Monday the 13th... wish her luck!!!
