Being a FedEx or other delivery driver in a residential area would be so much fun. All day long they're making people happy because they're bringing them stuff they want and have been eagerly waiting for. This time the FedEx guy brought the right thing: Chloe’s plane tickets. So now she has all the necessary documentation to leave home and spend the school year in Spain.
A has already sent her documents to Madrid and said that they were looking for plane tickets. I still don’t know the time frame or exactly how she’s getting around the DS2019. Chloe so wants her here before she leaves. It will be so odd: two girls from different parts of the world, living in each other’s homes and sleeping in each other’s beds. Chloe talked to A2 and asked about A’s sister, who’s in Kansas right now. She said she was very nice, talkative, and brought only one small suitcase. How did she do that? Chloe could fit in just one of her suitcases. A2 is not traveling with the group going from Chicago to Copenhagen, and she gets to Madrid in the morning, Chloe arrives at night. But they'll meet up there for the two-day orientation. She and A2 will be on the same floor at school, but A2 starts several days later and gets out several days earlier.
Anna Rae left this morning, which makes it all seem even more real. Her mom said it went well at the airport and thinks she’ll feel even better when she hears from Anna Rae after she arrives. She also had a good idea – bring a few bags of microwave popcorn. Other kids had said it was nice to have something they could make for themselves in the beginning without having to ask the host family where everything was in the kitchen. And Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Having a few familiar foods stashed away would be a nice security blanket.
The big picnic for friends and family is this Saturday and from then it will be only five more days until departure. Who’s bright idea was this?
