"Update update update update blog blog blog blog please please pleas love love love"

I´m almost positive that it´s raining or maybe snowing in Seattle and it´s surrounding areas. And that makes me smile because I am at La Serena sitting in our giant apartment that you need to only go down the elevator and out the gate to touch sand that burns the toes and makes you run into the mildly cool water. We are going to be here for 2 more weeks. So I´m pretty content!

Before we got to La Serena, we stopped for a couple days in Pichidangui to visit with family and go to the beach. The first morning that we were in La Serena, I woke up because my bed was shaking and then I looked at the cieling and the light fixture was swinging back and forth and then I jumped up and yelled to Fran who was sleeping right next to me and we ran out of the room into the living room and Marisa and Jorje and Adriana were all standing in the doorway and Adriana was crying because she hates earthquakes. It was very strange. The only earthquake I ever remember was when I was in 3rd grade, but we all thought it was just someone on the roof for some reason. It started in Mendoza, Argentina and it was a 6 pointer, but it wasn´t that strong when it got to La Serena.  And today we were laying on the beach and there was a little tiny one.

I started reading Crepusculo, also known as Twilight. It´s in Spanish, might I add! I started it a couple days ago and I´m already half way done. It´s really cool because I was reading and then I realized that I don´t even have to translate into English as I read. I just understand. And I understand almost everything. It makes me very happy!

I´m also very happy beacuse of this family. It is such a difference from my old one and they are soo so nice and happy. Yesterday we were in the supermercado and Fran was walking around to everyone and sticking her cheek out so that they would kiss her. And then Adriana looked at me, and walked over and kissed me on the cheek. And then Marisa did the same. And then Jorje did. And then Fran did. Happy Happy Happy!

So really nothing to interesting to update about!
