Long time no post...

Okay sorry I haven't been very good at documenting my trip! We have been sooo busy. We wake up around 7 and then don't get any time to relax until we get home around 9 or 10 at night. It makes for a very long day. So far we have been to England, Belgium and the Netherlands. In London i went to see Wicked and Les Miserables...both were awesome! After London we went to Brugges, this tiny town in Belgium. It is by far my favorite place we have been to. It was so quaint and all the people were so friendly. The only problem was that we stayed at this bed and breakfast with this crazy woman named madame Nicole who had this disgusting cat named tibou. Also I'm pretty sure madame used our bed as a litter box and i ended up with a weird rash after sleeping there. Enough said about that though. After Brugges we went to Brussels for a day, which I didn't really like very much. It was very touristy and just kind of dirty. After Brussels we went to Antwerp and now we are in Amsterdam.  Yesterday we went bike riding through these forests and giant fields in a national park here in the netherlands. It was really beautiful and so much fun. Also, we just got some information about the families we will be living with in Paris!! My family is Monsieur and Madame Devarenne. They live in Boulogne which is about a 10 minute metro ride into paris. They have 5 daughters, the youngest is 24 and still lives at home with them. Also they have a small dog so I'm excited to have a pet! We leave for Paris on tuesday so I can't wait to meet them! Well I miss everyone so much and I promise I'll be better about updating once I get settled into Paris! I'll try to put up some pictures soon.
Love you all!
p.s. I never thought i would say it...but i am so sick of bread! Today we got mexican food in den haag and it was soo delicious. I had nachos with was so good to have something besides bread, cheese and nutella which is all i eat for every meal!

Your mom just sent me your blog address! How fun to hear about your europe adventures.....Do you realize how blessed you are? I'm so excited for you and look forward to seeing some of the pictures from your travels...especially cause we got to go there. I loved the little branch/ward where they meet in Paris. It reminded me of the Nuns church in the sound of music. Anyway, I will add you to my blog list if that's ok. Have fun. Love, Aunt Shelly

Are you seriously sick of nutella? Is that possible? I'm glad to hear you're having such a great time. I'm so jealous...I want to go back to Europe!
