Host Family!!!!!!!!!

I got my host family today! The day after I write a blog post about how I'm sick of waiting... maybe I should do that more often =D. I was so excited when my mom told me she got an email that I could now see who they are that I think if any police had seen me driving home they would have put my permit though a paper shredder =D. But next year I will be living in... Martina Franca, Italy!!!!! It is a town with about 49,000 people at the top of the heel of the boot of Italy. Not really near any really famous cities so I kind of have to describe it that way. I have been googling all afternoon and there is only one thing I can find that I don't like about it: it doesn't snow. But other than that I am so excited!!!!!!!!
Oh, and my host family! I have two host siblings: a girl who is 17 and turning 18 in November, and a boy who turns 15 in June. I have a host mom and dad, and one of them is a doctor. I don't know which because it just listed one occupation that wasn't even attached to one of their names. And my host school is just 6 minutes walking away from the house (Thank you google maps!). I haven't sent them an email yet, but I don't think it matters that I've waited a couple of hours because they're probably still sleeping. But I think I'll probably do that now. In Italian. Haha, good luck to them trying to understand it XD


  1. Congrats to you Emily! How exciting to know who the family is now, I am so happy for you. Now you know the other side of a family look at your info and the picked YOU.

  2. Che bello il tuo blog, Emily! Quando sei in Italia devi scrivere spesso - voglio sapere cosa fai e quante cose belle vedi :)
    Quando arrivi a Martina Franca, urla Ole' e mangia un gelato grande grande per festeggiare :)
    Ci vediamo la prossima settimana!
