Three of our 5th graders sent updates about their homestays. Sounds like initial feelings of anxiety and homesickness have given way to happiness and enthusiasm!
Frances: The first day was hard because I missed my parents, but I got used to it. On Sunday it was a bit easier. Now that I’m at school and with my friends it’s much easier.
Keeli: The first night it was really hard and I thought “How am I going to stay here for a whole week?” but then we had a lot of fun on Sunday and I don’t miss my parents anymore.
Parker: The first night it was a little hard to adjust but after that it got easier and easier. During my time here I have learned allot, met new people and had a lot of fun with my host family they are vary nice.
