I love family dinners!

Most people don’t really like having big family dinners, but I enjoy them very much. Our dinner yesterday was awesome and absolutely delicious :)
We had a tomato soup as a starter, then pork filet with rosemary potatoes and a bean-mushroom-tomato salad. As a dessert, my Mom made mixed berries with vanilla ice cream and a cheese platter *yummy* Did I mention that I am spoiled by all the great food right now? ;)

My Great-aunt loved everything and told us afterward that she enjoyed the evening very much and that it was definitely better than having dinner at a restaurant!

Today my sister and I went to her elementary school and I helped her prepare her class room for next week when school starts again. It was great to finally see where she works and what her class room looks like. We cleaned out shelves, rearranged the tables and attached posters at the walls.
My sister really is an elementary school teacher with all her heart. It’s awesome to see how much work she puts into everything. I know she’s very determined and dedicated to her job and I know she’s a wonderful teacher.

In the afternoon, I went over to my aunt’ s to have a coffee with her. I hadn’t visited her at her place yet and it was nice to spend some time with her.

In the evening I had dinner with my parents and afterwards I talked on the phone with Alicia, my friend from California who moved to Germany last December with her boyfriend Andi. We were on the phone for about 1,5 hours and it was absolutely awesome to talk to her again. I’ll definitely try to manage to see her while I am here. She lives near Frankfurt and since I have to go there for my appointment at the embassy anyways, I’ll try to stop by her place. I miss her not being around in Cali anymore. Her German is really good already. I am impressed how much she has learned in the last 8 months!
