Letter to my Host Family

Lydia is an only child, but she has always wanted to have siblings. Her parents work hard during the week, so on the weekends they like to spend a lot of time together. Usually they get together with her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Cousins are Lydia's favorite people! It is the closest thing she has to siblings and she really appreciates all the time she gets to spend with them. Lydia's favorite season is summer because they all go to the beach, have barbecues, and go to amusement parks together. Lydia also has a large group of friends in school and in her community. When she is not with friends or family, she enjoys her time alone reading, listening to music, and watching movies and television shows. She has recently started running, too. Lydia has big dreams of becoming a doctor and traveling the world. She has recently started volunteer work in a senior center. Lydia is so thankful to learn and grow and become a better version of herself during her exchange year.
