Trying something new…And loving it!
And Gould said “Let there be break!” And there was break. Kinda. For some of us *The Skiers* we are still waking up every morning and going skiing in some wonderful conditions. But that’s not what this glog is about.
My 8th grade year, I was not at Gould yet. However, my mom was teaching the 8th grade program, and I was going to be at a skiing camp all break. So when asked to take a couple international students to our house over break (Jane Guan ’10 and “Guan” ’11) we of course said yes! We had a blast learning about their culture, and made a couple of great friends!
And again this year, we found ourselves in the same situation. My French friend (Sydney “Syd” Weber ’11) asked me if he could stay at my house over break because he was having trouble finding a place to go. It was fun the first time to have students stay at our house over break, so we said yes again! If you ever have the chance to host a student in need, give it a shot. It’s great fun, and you have the chance to learn a lot about another culture.
P.s. These are my 2 shots of the day on the mountain. Was pretty good after it stopped raining, we had a lot of fun!
