I didn’t write to you last month, so I am going to write to you now. How are you feeling? Mom told me that you had the flu last week, but she said you are over it now. I hope you are feeling much better. Everyone in our family misses you. We talk about you all the time. Do you like your new apartment? I hear you have a nice view from you living room window. Mom said that there is a park near your apartment. She said that you like the park, and you take a walk in the park every day. She said that you also like to read books, but you don’t like to watch TV.

Everyone in our family is feeling fine. Both of us kids are back in school now, and we like our teachers and classmates. Billy is on the school football team, and he really likes his coach. His team played four football games last month. His team won three games and lost one. Billy really likes football. Mom is baking cookies today. She bakes cookies every week.   She likes to bake, and both of us children love to eat her cookies.

Well, Uncle John, I have to study English now. I have a test tomorrow. Please write to us if you have time.
