I am finally (somewhat) settled in! I have unpacked, figured out what I forgot (2 dresses, a skirt, and my sneakers), and interacted with my family. I love them! There are two daughters (14 and 16) and son, who will be 19 in November. The parents gave me a tour of the neigbhorhood yesterday, which I thought was very nice of them to do.
My room is small-ish but delightfully cozy; I have a little shower/sink in my room, as well as a mini-fridge and a microwave! Quelle chance! I'll post pictures and write more later, but now I have to leave for my first orientation session.
