My Host Family!
MY HOST FAMILY!
Yes! I am VERY lame for not writing about my host family and my house when I first got here.. but better late than never, eh? (I actually have been thinking about it for a while I just haven't done it yet! hah..) SO! Here goes!
In my family I have 4 host brothers: Frederik (8), Jonathan (10), Nikolai (14), and Mathias (18). Mathias lives with another family and Nikolai is going to an Efterskole (like a boarding school that I wrote about a couple months ago) and only comes home on the weekends. So at home, it's me, Frederik, Jonathan, my host mom Maria, and my host dad Anders. Anders works with construction and Maria has been in training to get her taxi drivers license (she passed the test yesterday and we are all SO proud of her!) Anddd I'm not sure if I've told you, but Bjarke is Maria's older brother.. so he is my "host uncle" in a sense, which makes Solvej my "host aunt"!
OK! SO! My house: I took pictures a week ago.. so here they are!
We will start with my room.. (my room is actually cleaner now.. don't worry!)
