Today is Logan's 17th birthday. We called her at 11 o'clock this morning, and it was after supper in Germany. We only talked with her for a few minutes because she was in the middle of a party. Her host family threw a big surprise birthday party for her and invited a slew of teenagers from her new school. That was so sweet! Logan said her family is very nice. She rode one of their bicycles into town the other day, forgot to lock it, and when she came out of the store, it was gone. She said the family didn't even get mad.
Logan just started her new school this week. She said there were about 30 kids in each of her classes, and there were over 1000 kids in the high school. She's used to attending a small private school with a graduating class of 30, so this will be quite a change for her -- notwithstanding the fact that all her classes are in German!!
