Today was not only Sunday, but Mother's day and Franzi's birthday. Sunday most Germans take it easy and relax. The family slept in and didn't get up until around 9. I got up early and got ready for the day. I went down stairs early and sat with Lea who was already up as well. Once the family was up, Franzi opened her gifts and we ate breakfast. We had a big family meal together around 2. Franzi, Lea, Annika, and I played Just Dance after lunch. It was fun.
Later we went to the Nordkirchen Castle. We meet Emily, her host mom, Jennay, Bea, and their host mom. As a group we got a tour of the castle. Afterwards, my family plus Emily walked around the place. It was very beautiful.
We went straight from there to a dinner party that Stephanie and Ashely's host family was having. This was our big end of the trip get together for all the student teachers and our host family's. We spent a couple hours there conversing with people. Then we went home for the night.
