Waking up.

I woke up late today. During the week I go with Gabi to the Kindergarten where she works, and so I set my alarm to wake me up at 6:45 this morning, only I didn't hear the alarm, and so I slept in till 8:20. I was scared that Gabi would be gone, but she waited for me to wake up and I felt quite bad.

Anyways, these past 3 days here in Germany have been tiring to say the least. I feel like I havent put done my German-English dictionary. I've learned so much even though its only been a few days.

Henry and Gabi are busy preparing for the big party tomorrow. Its supposed to be warm tomorrow so that is good. I hope that I can manage to get some German out of me tomorrow haha, because all the relatives know that Im in Germany now, so they will probably want to ask me questions and such... eek. It should be good fun haha.

The Kindergarten was good today. I really enjoy being around the kids, and Im almost sad to see the weekend come. Those kids are helping me with my German, I'm noticing that my German is slowly getting better and better because of listening to them. Its good for me, because everyday they do little exercises with words and such, and that is like a mini grammar lesson for me. During lunch today, one of the little boys named Leon tried to make me repeat tongue twisters in German, I couldnt do it. Then I told him the Peter Piper toungue twister, and everybody repeated it after me. It was so cute.

Anyways, next week after the Kindergarten Gabi will probably take me to Basel, or Freiburg, and we'll do some shopping, or some cite seeing. But for now I am pretty much on my own because of the business of the party.

Anyways, much love to all of you that read my blog. Leave me a comment, I want to know what is happening in Canada haha.

Hi Kirstyn! Thanks for the emails and the posts on the blog. It is so nice to be able to connect in almost real time like this. Hang in there with the German. You will get it little by little and soon will find that phrases will begin to roll off your tongue. Then you will start putting phrases together to have real conversations. Keep it up. I wish I was there with you.

I left a comment a couple of days ago but don't see it listed. Maybe you need to check your junk mailbox to see if it landed there so you can approve the comments that come your way.
Love ya!
