WOW!!!  I want to send out a huge thank to the rotary club, although I’ve only been here for 3 weeks I want to tell you I’m having the time of my life and I’m so happy and blessed to have this opportunity ...it truly is going to be a great year. I recently just had my first rotary weekend and can’t really express what a great experience it was. I had the chance to meet all the other students in my district ....there are 52 of us and only 3 from Canada. Just being around kids all going thought the same thing makes you feel at home. Only after knowing them for 2 days we are like a family and planning out the next time we can meet up. The opportune so far have been great too, Love my host family so much; I’m their first exchange student they have ever had, so that's very exciting. They have been taking me to do lots of stuff they've been making French meals and showing me different cities and village too. The past weekend with the distract we went to the biggest zoo in Europe which was really cool. Everything going really well, The language is difficult, especially not being able to speak well but I learning more and more everyday. I’m so excited for the year ahead and will send you more up dates as exciting things happen With much thanks, Zoey Lowes
