Kiwi's camping adventure

"Hi everybody! For the past few weeks, all the workdays have been quiet, since my host has no time to take me anywhere since she's still busy with school, but at weekends it's been really fun! Two weeks ago my host had her birthdayparty. It was so much fun! At saturday, few of my hosts friends came by. We watched movies and ate candies and drinked limonade.


At first we watched FF7 Advent Children, which was ok movie. And then we started to watch The Island, but at the halfway we noticed that there airs a Monty python movie "Brian's life" from TV, and since my host is a Monty Python fan, we decided to watch that instead. And sure that was funny movie! We laughed a lot. It was nice evening.

The next sunday my host's cousins came. We didn't do much, just ate cake (which was really good!) and chatted. But it was still fun! After all, the whole weekend was nice. And last weekend my host invited me to sleep in a lean-to with her and her sister and their two friends. I was so excited! We left at saturday night, and my host's dad drove us to the place we we'rte supposed to sleep. Unfortantely we couldn't stay there, 'cause there wasn't axe. We moved to next lean-to, and stayed there. After we made the fire, we just sat there and ate and chatted. It was a bit scary, since it was all dark and we were there by ourselves in the middle of nowhere. But I was with others so it was okay. When the clock was about 12 p.m, we started to sleep. My host's bigsister Elisa took the first turn to watch that the fire doesn't go out. It was actually pretty warm in the lean-to, so I slept well. At 5.am. it was my host's turn to watch the fire and she invited me to stay up with her. I stayed up for a while and watched the beautiful lake, but I was so sleepy that I went back to sleep. And when to morning came, we left the lean-to and came back home. I had to stay outside for that day since I smelt smoky (and I still smell a bit smoky...). It was so exciting night! I was able to see real finnish nature, and it was so nice. Next week I'm moving forward, to southern Finland! Yay! -Kiwi"

It looks like Kiwi is having fun. My children & I can hardly wait to host him in the USA.
