Keeping Busy in Texas

Barely time for Spaniard to reflect on growth

My host family and I do a lot of activities during school breaks and on weekends. We have visited Galveston, Austin, and San Antonio and went to Six Flags for my birthday. We’ve been to museums in downtown, the cinema, and a lot of different cultural restaurants.

With my friends, I went to school football games, homecoming, malls, trick-or-treating, pajama parties, festivals, and ice skating. All of the people here are nice, funny, and friendly. I have noticed how much I’ve grown with my listening, vocabulary, and pronunciation.
