Way back in December I didn’t know what it was like to have a sister. All I had ever had were brothers. When I learned that my family would be hosting our eighth exchange student, I was more than excited. The fact that I was going to have a new sister fascinated me.

The week went by with classy day, blaze orange and camo day, red and white day, backpack day and tie dye Friday. I find it odd that we were allowed to have a backpack day when we aren’t allowed to carry backpacks in school. Some people dressed up and some people didn’t. The whole week led up the Snoball dance. I wasn’t going to go, but then Siri and our friend Julia convinced me to go. Continue Reading
