My Host Family!!!

I got my host family!!!!  I'm so excited! 

They live in Minato-Ku which is a ward of Tokyo.  I wanted to be in a city so I am very happy about the placement.  The family has two kids, a girl and a boy, who are 11 and 8.  I guess I will be a big sister again :) 

I got placed in a "Permanent Multiple Placement" which means I will switch host families after four months.  At first I was a little disappointed, but I think it will be interesting to have two different experiences.  

I'll be going to Aoyoma Gakuin Senior High School.  I went to the school's website yesterday and it looks really nice.  I'm not looking forward to the uniform though.  It's a plaid skirt with a light colored blouse.  I guess it's not that bad compared to what it could be though...

I can't believe it is less than two months until I leave!  I can't wait!
