A Letter from Memphis

Dear Mr Lietze
Merry Merry Christmas
I am missing you so much and sometimes I wish that I could come back to New Zealand, but I am having so much fun here.
I wish you could explore the fun snow and allsorts. We had thanksgiving and had Turkey and had lots of fun in the snow.
This morning when we woke up it was snowing outside.
I am learning to measure the American way, and we are learning pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars.
My teachers name is Miss Davis, and my new friends are Jadyn, Alena, and Natalie.
We got given a car, and move into our own house on Monday.
Please say hi to all the kids in the class I miss them all, and please tell Milly I miss her and wish I could have more fun with her.
You are the best people in the whole entire world.
God Bless

Slideshow: Our Class Breakup

On Friday the class came to my house and we went down the plain white waterslide. When I did a bomb into the water my legs got biten by an eel. It felt like a little nip on my heal except it hurt more. By William

It was funny when Mr Lietze had a ride on the waterslide. He jumped onto his bottom and slid down the slide. He landed in mud at the bottom. By Bianca

Canoing was my favourite because it was new to me. I also liked going down the waterslide. It was yucky when we landed in the mud at the bottom. When we were watching the people go down the waterslide, suddenly there was thunder and lighting. BOOM! Then the rain came down. It went twinky twinky. William said that the Mums' could go up to their house for coffee and tea. By Ketsia

On Friday night at William's house we went canoing. I had my first time in a canoe and I learnt how to row backwards. I also went down the waterslide and then I got a big scratch on my leg because there was a sharp bit on the end of the slide and you got scratches from the grass. By Caitlin
