no school!

On Thursday night at like 4 o'clock there was a call that said that there is no school in the day, because of the snow.
I was so happy when i heard about this in the morning and i went straight back into bed again.

At day we shoveled the roof of Marty's shop (shop = Werkstatt, Marty = my host dad) which was very exhausting (the snow was about half a meter high). After lunch we helped shovelling the roof of the grandparents.

Later Jeralyn (host mom) and i went to Walmart. We bought some stuff for school and i actually wanted to buy a cell phone, but all the prepaid phones have an expiration date (about 45 days) and then you have to enter some other minutes (for about 20 bucks, buck is just another word for dollar). That sucks and therfore i decided not to buy a cell phone...maybe i'm going to get now another sim card which is especially for exchange students.

In the evening while we sat on the table the phone rang and they told us that there is again no school...so right now i'm in the middle of a four day weekend *happy* (here it is almost midnight of Friday, that's why i'm going to bed now. Maybe i'll tell you tomorrow more about my second school free day, but now you guys already have lots of new information to read.)

My first time on skis!

Last Monday (there was no school, because it was between the two semester, the second one started on tuesday) i went skiing with the sister of my hostmom and her two sons...

We went up Schweitzer (http://www.schweitzer.com/, it's a ski ressort next to Sagle) at like 8.30 in the morning. I bought a package for 65 $ (about 44 Euro) which include gear rental (skis, boots and poles (=Stoecke)) a lift ticket and an 1 to 2 hours lesson. I was lucky and the only person in the lesson so it was kind of private but i paid for a public one.
So, when we rented my stuff there was still about an hour left till the beginning of my lesson. Therefore Lindy (my hostmum's sister showed me some basics and we went down the bunny hill...it was a bit odd, but except of controling speed it went well.
After this run we went down Midway which is a longer and steeper slope...it was hard, i often fell down and lost my skis several times.

After this downhill i had my lesson. My teacher was very nice and i learned a lot, above all controling speed

After the lesson and lunch, i went with jerry (the son of Lindy -> my cousin) another few times midway down until we departed at like 3 o'clock.

Yeah, that was my first amazing day on skis.
