It's snowing...

I have been in Germany for five days now and it has already snowed twice, which is very exciting since it is probably in the 70s at home. Although I will be here for five weeks which is quite a bit of time, the first five days have already gone by so quickly. I feel like before I know my time will be up and I will be on a flight back home to the states.
Why am I in Germany you may ask?? I am here to visit friends who live outside of Munich in a little city near Ingolstadt. I babysat Claudia and Dennis' three boys when they lived in Thousand Oaks during my freshman year at CLU. After that year they moved back home to Germany for Dennis's work. I was lucky enough to spend two weeks with them after study abroad and they invited me back after I graduated. They are such wonderful people and it is so nice to get to see them again. Claudia and I have stayed in touch since they left but email and facebook just don't fill the void of a face to face conversation.
So far we have done a few small things such as gone sledding and walking through downtown Ingolstadt. But I am enjoying just blending in to their every day lives. When I go to visit someone, I am there to see them, so I am happy to do just about anything. Although we have do have some fun things planned for the rest of my weeks here including a trip to Hannover to visit Dennis and Claudia's hometown and family.

I haven't gotten a chance to take any pictures yet, but as soon as I do I will do my best to share them with you.

P.S. All of my graduate school applications are in so now it is just a matter of waiting and seeing and maybe in the next two months I will have an idea of where I will be living for the next year or so!!!!
