Feels Like Autumn
Hi, this is Bree with another trip report.
The weather has definitely taken a turn for the chilly. No capri pants and short sleeves today! We're wearing hoodies and flannels, and taking notice of the fallen leaves. It really feels like autumn. And like Western New York.
We've been doing more visiting of relatives, and we attended an event about global issues at a local college. ("College" is different in the United States than in Canada; this was at what we would call a university.)
Next weekend, we're probably going to go down to Pennsylvania to the little summer place Blakeney's parents and grandparents share. It's really nice, right by a creek. Hopefully it'll be sunny and warm enough to go wading and kayaking, and we hope to get some pictures of our vacation fun, too.
A little over a week till we go home. Time flies when you're having fun... and we're having a lot of it! :-)
Now, this is Kaya, with a report from home. :-)
I got assigned a penpal! I don't know much about her except that she's my same age (twelve) and in Grade Seven like me, and that she lives in Nunavut. I also got her name and address and stuff, so I can write to her, although I don't know yet if she'll mind me sharing her name on the blog, so I'm gonna wait on that for now. I sent her my first letter talking about myself and asking her about her, so hopefully I'll hear back soon and be able to tell you more. I'm really excited to hear from her!
Also, Charissa decided to try out for the soccer team at her new school, and she made it! We're really happy for her. She's never played on a team before, but she likes soccer with her friends. I think she'll enjoy it, and that it'll help her settle into her new school and make extra friends. Yay for Charissa!
That's all the news for now!
