Dear Cristiann,

My name is Jenin. Thank you for your letter. It's so pretty. I like the way you draw. I like to draw, too. In Lebanon, I don't see any camels. We see horses and sheep. I have seen the snow before a lot in the mountains. We go there in winter and ski. Have you ever seen the beach? We have a nice beach in Lebanon.

Your friend,

Jenin

Dear Pen Pals,
My hobby is riding horses in the forest. My dad said there is a lot of mountain lions and a lot of jumps that we have to jump and a lot of creeks to go through. Mostly every fall before school we go riding horses, but we go more often in the summer. Do you have a hobby?
Your friend,
Cristiann


Dear Cristiann,
I'm so sorry to hear about your mom.
I like to play outdoors with my brother and sister. Do you have brothers and sisters? What do you like to do on Sundays? Do you have lots of homework? I have a doll. I named her Salita.
