To Kareem in Beirut:

Dear Kareem,
My name is Jack. I live in Colorado. I am 7. I went on a trip to Mexico for my sister's wedding. I went snorkling and saw a big sea turtle. What do you like to do? Have you ever been snorkling?
Your friend,
Jack

Dear Jack,

I live in Beirut. I am 7, too. Say Congratulation to your sister. You will be an uncle soon and you're small. I don't know what snorkling is. What is it? We have tests this week and then 10 days vacation. Maybe I'll go to the mountains to play in the snow.

We don't have snow in Beirut. It only rains.

Kareem

Dear Kareem, Well snorkling is when you have a tube to breathe through while you swim in the sea. So if you see someone with a tube in their mouth you know what they are doing. Oh, I forgot they will have a pair of goggles and flippers on. Do you swim in the sea? Your friend, Jack



Dear Oli,
We had some African drummers come to our school. It was fantastic and fun. Have you lost any teeth? I haven't lost one.

Dear Pen Pals,
I like to play golf and especially miniature golf. It is really fun. Do you have a golf course where all of you live? I also like to do demolition derby with my John Deere. My John Deere is a kid size electric green pickup truck. I crash into things. I crash into the wall and boxes. It is fun. What is your hobby?
Your friend,
Jack


Dear Jack and Meg,
Thank you, Jack for explaining to me what snorkling is. I like to swim in summer and make sand castles. Thank you Meg for your beautiful letter. I like your drawing. Your handwriting is so nice. My favorite is crispy and my favorite pet is a dog.

Your friend,
Kareem

Dear Jack, Meg and Kareem,
I live in Zambia. In Zambia I have genets in my back yard. A genet is a small wild cat. One of them ate my sister's guinea pig. My sister bought a new guinea pig. Also we have Water Bucks and warthogs in our yard. A warthog is a wild pig. Also, we saw a black mamba in our yard. It scared me, my Dad killed it. Before that happened my gardener wacked the black mamba with three hose pipes. What animals do the rest of you have?
From Oli

Dear friend,
Oli, it is good to talk to you again. It is spring in Craig. Is it spring where you live?
Your friend,
Jack
