Families Fanning Fortune's Flames

This one'll be quick, don't worry.

Basically, in the past week, I had a hard time figuring out what was going to happen to me. However, last Sunday, when the AFS meeting happened, everything changed. The first thing on the agenda for the normal meeting was letting everyone know that I desperately needed a family, and voila! 2 families apparently have offered to host me, and a third has offered as well apparently! So my situation is going to be fine now. W00t! I'm currently at my support coordinator's house again after leaving the Cooks. I'm going to get those photos at some point, so you don't need to worry, I'll have 'em up sometime.

In other news, I'm now fully back into Fairfield. Not much in terms of interesting stuff to say, but PHD is fun. PHD is a phys-ed/health class. 2 out of the 4 days we have the class we spend time in the school's pool (which doesn't have a greasy film on the surface unlike some schools I know *cough* ALLDERDICE *cough*) practicing kayaking! We're practicing rolling the kayak for in 7 or 8 weeks we'll be kayaking down the Waikato River, and rolling will be an important skill. It's a nice diversion to the normal school day.

So happy to hear the good news! I knew that you would come out on top in the end. Let me know if you need anything else. I played BlankSlate and I liked it! I am not so good at those sorts of games, but I got the hang of it a little. The only problem is I played by myself, so I ended up dying and my opponent never moved once...... so he won!

Great to hear the good news. Keep at it and we love you!

Thanks for the family issue update, Andy; PHEW! So glad things are working out this way.

Rolling a kayak and going down the river sound way cool :-). Enjoy!

Love you,
