The summer is here and my stay in the US is coming to an end. The last 4 days of school we just had final exams and the 16th was our last days. It's summer!! Well, the weather was perfect even before that. Here in Virginia the summer is extremely hot and humid (compared to Germany). But other than for riding I don't have any problems with that and won't complain at all because we have this awesome pool!! :) Because of that Sarah and I have frinds over all the time now. Hanging out around the pool and jumping in the water when it gets too hot. By now even the water temperature is perfect for me. It isn't freezing cold any more, just perfect. Well the people who know me probably think the water is extremely warm when I say it's not too cold. :D

I'm sorry i haven't written anything new in a while but I totally forgot the time. This year went by so fast. I can remember the big snowstorm as if it was two weeks ago. Now that we don't have school and the weather is so awesome I completely forget time. Hanging out at the pool with friends, doing my last big shopping trip with Ally, and I'm going to a good bye pool party today. All the other exchange students are leaving even sooner than I am.

But even if it doesn't sound like it I'm also looking forward to see you guys again! 11 months is a long time and I can't believe I haven't seen y'all in such a long time. My good bye party in Germany doesn't seem that long ago, does it?? Besides I have to come back to support Germany. Why do all the usually good European countries suck right now at whe fifa world cup?? That was the first thing we talked about last Friday when Amaia and Jade came over. It was extremely funny since we had poeple from the best soccer teams in Europe (Germany, Spain and France). My idea was that we have to go back to our home country to support them from there so that they gonna do better (even though Amaia from Spain supports Germany) cause right now we are in the US and they are doing extremely well.

Going home also means getting started with my drivers license. Well right now after 11 months US I really wanna drive, since it was normal for teenagers to drive here but on the other hand I'm not ready cause of the many car accidents they have. Earlier in the year there was a big car crash where the car got torn apart into two pieced and the two students were supposed to die. Then on this Saturday morning a guy in my grade died because of a car accident. It seems so unreal cause I knew that kid. We weren't friends but he was in my grade, had a class together and have even talked before. Maybe it's good that the driving age in Germany is older.

Today is June 7th!

Do you know what that means??? Well if you've followed my blog or talked to my family we know that imma be home in exactly one month. I know the time seriously flew by so freaking fast.

This Sunday we had kinda like a good bye pax poolparty with all the exchangestudents. Actually not even all of them cause one girl is already back home since the middle of May I think. Anyways, this really made all of us think how soon we'll be home - and I'm actually the one who stays here the longest. None of the other exchange students stay fot 4th of July. But we didn't let the thought of leaving our new American familie and friends too close and just had fun that day.

The week before we had our own pool party for Memorial Day here at our house. Nobody had to go to school because of the holiday and in the after noon many of Patrice's friends came over with their families. The only people I knew were Nelsons and Mike, Lisa and Britany. (Sarah's and my trainers and their working student for this summer)The funniest thing that day was that I realized how tanned I am. :D I was sitting between Sarah and Britany at the pool and they're both so pale, or at least their legs. But I think it wasn't just them I think my legs have never been that tanned before. They're almost as tanned as my arms. Until that day Sarah always used riding and wearing briches as her excuse/explanation for not being tanned but then the realized that I ride as much as she does. I don't really know how my legs got tanned but I think it's from running because I have a shorts tanline - unfortunatelly. But other than running it's true that I've been outside a lot lately. The weather is just so great. I love the sun!! But here it gets really humid so that it feels even hotter than it already is. Imma be wearing sweatchirts all the time back in Germany when I hear about your 12 degree Celcius over there. I'm definitely panning on taking the sun with me.

The Memorial Day weekend was pretty busy for me. The day before the pool party Sarah and I went to a combined training test (jumping and dressage)which went pretty well for us over all. Sarah came in first in her level and I ... well I dont' need to explain everything but the important thing is that Rosalie and I improved a lot from last time. Our dressage was ok but compared to everyone else we woulda won over all if I wouldn't have made a stupid mistake.
At night we went out for dinner and bowling with Mike, Lisa, and Britany. We went to a similar restaurant we took my dad so the cooked our food in front of us. I know I live in luxory here :) But I suck at bowling. Both times Sarah and I came in last and second to last. Mama sait it musta been the name. ;)

Friday night I went to the movies with Christine and we watched 'Sex and the City 2'. Has anyone seen that yet??
