About 3ish years ago my family hosted an exchange student from South Korea for a year. Lets just say it when not so well. So we (Mainly my dad) said we would never host a student again. Since we had hosted we still got the emails from the coordanator about the new students. My parents never really read them. Most of the time they were just deleted. Well last Decemeber my mom accidently opened one and her eye went to the profile of Roxane from Belgium. What stuck out to her we the fact that she has been to an orphanage just like our family. As she read further, she realized she would be a great fit for our family. First my mom came to me and told me about it. (So we would gang up on my dad) We talked about it and we decided to go for it. We were also thinking how if it didn't go well like last time it would only be 5 monthes instead of 9 like last time.
So January 5th our family went to the airport to pick up our new family member. We hit it off right away. Roxane and I got along really well. She picked up on american sarcasm fast from my dad and me. The biggest difference between the 2 of us was that she is what i call a neat freak. and I am what she calls a slob!
Roxane, my mom, and I had a girls weekend in Las Vegas in February. We had a great time! One time when we were in an elavator a lady looks at us and says "You two must be sisters.... you have the same nose!" We started to laugh, not only because we weren't sisters but also because a few days before I set the date for my surgery to fix my crooked nose (Thanks to a softball)
Roxane and I had a thing for watching movies. We both enjoyed the netflix!
We also took her camping! The first night when the smoke came to her she said a sentence and french and we just all looked at her like she was crazy! Then she told us that when she was in scouts and the smoke was in your face that was the sentence you would say. What does that sentence say you must ask? -I hate rabbits! My dad loved it and has been practicing (He still doesn't have it down well)
Roxane left for home on Saturday. :( the day after my nose surgery. It was really hard to say goodbye. Since I had just had surgery it wasn't a good idea for me to go to the airport with the family so i had to say my goodbyes at my aunts house. I couldn't look her in the eyes because I knew if I did i would start crying and that would be really painful in the nose. (But trust me Roxane, I CRIED LIKE A LITTLE SCHOOL GIRL!)
Roxane, Since you have left..... so far every night I have been sleeping in the living room so i can be upright for my nose. Tonight it the first night I am going to sleep in a bed. YOUR BED! because your bed doesn't have a ladder and your flour doesn't have anything on it that I could trip on. The bathroom- Clothes all over. But I would keep it clean for you if you came back!!!
