Dear Kompass -Team,
time to write the next Mail. I'm still enjoying my year very much. My host family is the best, I come along with my "mom" and "dad" very well and we have a lot of fun.
Of course we celebrated Thanksgiving. In the morning there was a race over three miles. I got third of the women and won a turkey. The whole family came to our house in the evening and we had a huge dinner.
We also went to the mountains to get Christmastrees and we decorated the house for Christmas. We had the first snow today, and of course we made a snowman and spent the whole day outside.
We've already started track preseason, right now we practice three times a week in the weight room. My host dad is the head coach and my older brother is a track coach, too, so we have a lot of fun.
Next Wednesday and Thursday are the finals in school. School is still pretty easy, but we often have a lot of homework. But school here is so much more fun, I made a lot of friends and the teachers are really nice.
I'm really excited for Christmas. We will leave the night after Christmas Eve to go on a trip. We'll take some friends and other exchange students with us and then we'll go to Las Vegas first and spend a night there, before we go to DISNEYLAND to Claifornia.
I really wanna say thank you. I have a great year and I really love New Mexico and the people here.
The picture is from the Christmas tree hunting with my best friend Sydney and my older brother's baby Lily. Hope you enjoy.
