On Thursday I repacked my stuff and we left for their family's mountain cabin. We were there with my host mom's sister and her family. There was also a family there who were friends with my family. There are two cabins. I shared a room with Silje. When we got there we ate dinner and just relaxed. It was a lot colder there. On Friday we went for a hike in the mountains. It was rainy and cold but it was really fun. I now love to go hiking and be outdoors. That night we play Fantasi. It is like charades but it is in Norwegian. It helped me to learn Norwegian. There were 8 kids there. Silje and Sondre, my brother and sister. Julia and Viktoria are my cousins. There was also Eirik, Vetla, and Nora who are friends of the family. We were all playing Fantasi so it was really fun. On Saturday the kids had a competition. We were in pairs and there was 5 events. I was with Vetla, who is 12. He tries to speak English to me but he is really bad, which makes it so funny. But he knows he is bad. But at least he tries, because most people don't try. The five events were darts, guessing foods while blindfolded, archery, answering questions, and using an air rifle. It was really fun even though we didn't win. That night we played Fantasi again. But this time it was the three families against each other. My family won the second time we played. On Sunday, we hiked in the mountains again and had lunch on a fire. Then we packed up and went home. It was really fun and I didn't want to leave. I can't wait to go back.
