On Sunday, students got to spend extra time with their home stay families. In the afternoon, students participated in an adventure race, and finally we all had a farewell party at one of the homestays.
I felt like for me this day really brought me closer to my homestay family, Tess, Janey and Felix. In the morning my homestay mom came to check on me and to see if I had been feeling better being that the previous night I had been quite ill. She was so kind to me and truly treated me as if I were her own which I greatly appreciated. Later that afternoon we had an adventure race and I was in a group with Felix, Tess, and Janey. We had to do a group rafting activity and together we worked so well together engaging in activities I never would have before and I’m so glad I got to work through these scary challenges with such amazing friends who I am now closer with for which I am so thankful.
