Dear friends,
This summer me, Dad, Alexei, and Hali went horse back riding in the forest. We had lunch at a little creek.
Me and my sisters got to play in the waterfall. Alexei fell in the rushing clear water. Alexei was so wet
she climbed up as fast as she could. Our dad tore some of his t-shirt off so she can dry herself off. Me and Hali laughed and kept on playing. A little bit later Alexei came back. Then we all played in the water for a little bit but then our feet got cold because we did not have any socks on or shoes on so we got on a nice warm log. Our dad was taking a lot of pictures. Then we dried off our feet and put on our socks and boots. We jumped the little creek. We had to ride back to our pickup. It took us two more hours to get back. What have you done lately?

Dear Friends,
My name is Hannah. I live in Zambia but I am from Australia and Laos. I just moved to Zambia in August and yesterday dog finally came to us here. His name is Jack and I am so happy to have him here. He can swim and he goes in our pool. I am still living in a hotel with my Mom and brother. Jack will stay at our new house with Mumba, our houseman until we can move in. I like to eat Thai food. What do you like to eat?

Dear friends,
Thank you for the letter. I am from Canada. I am going to go to Kimberley to see my Grandma and Papa at Christmas. I think they will be happy to see me. It always snows there so we get to ski together. My ten year old and fourteen year old sisters love to ski. Sometimes we fall down in the snow when we ski. In a week we are going on Safari to South Luangwa park. I hope we will see the lions. Then we will go to Malawi and snorkel around the island while we are there. There are really pretty colored fish to see. When we went there last year my Dad and my sisters snorkelled around. I was too afraid, my nine year old sister called Linnea saw a tiger fish!

Dear friends,
Thank you for the wonderful letter.My favorite food is Tohna. Tohna is a Greek food. My grandma is from Greece. Tohna is like oatmeal. Here it just started to snow so we got our snow stuff down from the attic. Then we went outside to play but our dog kept running away so it was not much like playing. That is what I have been doing lately. What have you been doing?
