This family is really amazing!! One of the happiest families I've ever met. Each of households is so nice, wonderful and respectable. Delicious foods, clean house, comportable atmosphere, and cool households. They are easygoing, humorous, kind, discreet, cool, and adorable. They helped me a lot and tried to make me feel comportable. I stayed just 3 weeks but we became friends. Those times were like a dream to me. I felt and learned lots of things about thinking, value, character, something like that from each of households. I can't wait to meet them in next time. I really really miss my family!!
