My Friend Gaby and B-Daman

My friend Gaby speaks English. I like that because most my friends here speak Italian but I'm learning to speak italian pretty good and sometimes I make a mistake and say things to Gaby in italian. She came over on Sunday to play.

She always wants to hold hands with me going to lunch, going to recess, going to everywhere when we go places. One time she sat next to me at lunch when I held hands with the boys. I said "for once can I sit with a boy?" And she said "what?" I think she likes me but not in the love way, just as a friend.

I got B-Daman just two days ago. And the reason I got them is because I got a perfect score in math which was 600 on the STAR test* and also trying hard in italy and because my italian is getting better. The names of my B-Daman are Cobalt Saber and Siphon Striker and this weird little guy that doesn't have a name. I think I will name him Laser Blaster.

I took this picture.

I am getting out of school early today so that we can go to a big medieval festival in Montalcino with an archery contest. I'll tell you about it next week. We are going to be gone for 6 days.

*(added by grandma) The STAR test is California's achievement test which he took last May.We just received the scores now.

My Scooter

This is me riding my scooter at Fattoria Viticcio where I live. I'm pretty good at it and can ride with just one hand. My grandma was afraid I was going to hit the wine bottles, but I didn't. My uncle Jeff sent the scooter from San Diego.

Camilla can ride her roller blades when I am doing my scooter. Here is a picture of us.

Ring a Ding--My New Friend

My new friend Ring a Ding Ding is from North Carolina. But isn't Ring a funny name? And when she was in college people asked her if her little sister was named Bracelet.

I like Ring's cats'names. They are funny: Lemon, Gracie, Stitch and Bradley. And they can talk, they say meow to the cat here in Fattoria Viticcio. His name is meow.

Ring, to answer your question, my italian is getting good. My friends can understand me. But I still have trouble understanding. It's sort of hard to understand because they talk fast.Tomorrow I am going to my friend's house. His name is Tommaso.

I think Ring is like one of my friends I call Uncle Benny. He says funny things too like "my head is spinning" when he is confused.

Here's a Ring. (My nonna helped me do this)

Ciao for now. It's chow time.

My Day At School

I had a good day at school today except that I couldn't concentrate that well because I was too busy thinking about my grandma who wasn't feeling good.

I had fish for lunch and it was verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry good. We put lemon juice on it. I don't usually like fish but this I mean was gooooooooooood.

Tomorrow I have karate and I've already memorized one new move. And one of the instructors told me to get there early for a special lesson from another karate champion but he isn't one of our instructors in karate. I am going to take a picture of my instructor Michele and show him to you.

Here is picture from the goat farm. It was fun.

These are the cute little puppies and the mommy doggy. The puppies are nursing.

The Goat Farm and My Friend Niccolo

I am going to a goat farm with cute little dogs that look like fluff balls. The dogs are all so cute and I really like them.

I think they might have a lot of goats because it is a goat farm. I think I will like it. They make cashmere wool out of the goat wool.

I had my friend Niccolo over to play today. I had to talk to him in Italian and I was good. My grandparents were impressed. Now here is a picture of Niccolo and me.
