Yes. Yes, it did.
This past Saturday I had contact with my first host family. Honestly I was just so happy. Who knew an email can make me so happy? They look like a very happy family. I responded back to their email. I am currently waiting on a response from them. They are a family of four: my mother Kanako, my father Takashi, my sister Risa, and my older brother Ryosuke. My sister is the same age as I am. I will only be with her for a couple days though. She will be leaving to Michigan in August. Hopefully within the short time we will become well friends. My brother Ryosuke has the same birthday as I do! I thought that was really neat. My host family lives in Nagoya. We are sorta close to the ocean. I am really excited to meet them and the rest of my host families, and of course Japan. In the meantime, I'll wait patiently. Thank you.
