I stayed there about a month and they are very good host family that really taking care of students. Uncle Bernie is a good cook and aunt Jocelyn gives a lot of advices regarding living in U.S. Their other family members are nice and it's good to spend time with them. They are energetic and they have activities every weekend which were fun. I strongly recommend foreign student to there.
