Here and There

I really miss Italy but I'm having a good time here in San Diego too. I really miss Camilla and Pimpi and Nicoletta and Alessandro and Signoria Franca and Beatrice and Arianna and Tommi and.... I think you got the point of it.

This is Me and Signoria Franca--Camilla's Nonna. I like her because she is nice and she makes VERY good lasagna and pizza. And she is taking care of my cactus for me.

What I really miss about Italy is seeing the pretty blue skies and being able to run around by myself and take walks by myself. If I did that here, I would get run over. I miss the piazza, all my friends, the Grog Shop. And I really, really miss Bruno cuz everytime I went into his shop he gave me a hug and kiss on the head and a free piece of bread or something like that. Here's a picture of io e Bruno.

I really miss my school and my teachers but I'm also having fun here.

I went to Zoo Camp this week. We saw a lot of animals like a python and a milk snake. They call that snake a milk snake because when they first saw that kind of snake in a barn with the cattle, they thought that it was there for the milk. But it actually was there to eat the rats. And the milk snake is not poisonous. It's colors are red and then black and gold.

This is a meercat.

This is an ant eater

Here's a picture of my counselors at camp.

I went to soccer camp two weeks ago and I don't know what I am going to do next week. That's a hard question. But on Tuesday Ryan one of my best friends in San Diego, is coming over. I wish my sister could come over tomorrow. She can't come because she's in Italy--actually, she's going to Elba.

But the most exciting thing about being home in San Diego is going to Sunday school. I really missed it while we were gone. In Sunday School I learn a lot about Jesus' travels and miracles. Last week I learned about Daniel and then about forgiveness.

Well, at least I get to go back to Italy next summer but I can have fun here, too.

Casey returning to San Diego has (and still is) a big adjustment for you isn't it. When you leave a place that you love you always leave a little bit of your heart there, but as sad as this is I'll bet you wouldn't have wanted to miss out on the year in Italy.

You are obviously getting very involved in activities in San Diego. When does school start?

Sheena, school starts the day after labor day.
I'm glad I went to Italy even though I am sad--you're right.

See you in Savannah!

Hi Casey,
I know you miss Italy, but it does sound like you have lots of fun things to do in San Diego too. Your zoo camp really sounded like fun.
Have you started back to school yet? My grandsons Tommy & Jon start tomorrow, they were here with us all week. We went to see Underdog, have you seen it yet? It was a good movie. I’m glad you are still writing in you blog. I would have written to you sooner but we have been away for most of the summer. I’ll look forward to reading about your new school year on your blog.
Lots of Hugs,

Hi KC,
That is a really cool looking ant eater! Sounds like zoo camp was fun.
When I was in highschool and university, my summer job was camp counsellor and camp director for a YM-YWCA day camp at a beautiful lake/conservation area in Paris, Ont. It was so much fun for being my job!
So, you will be in grade 3, right?
I bet you are looking forward to seeing all of your friends in just 16 more days.
Hope you keep up with your blog.

Something that helps me when I am missing Italy EVERY DAY is to be with other people who love being there and "get it". We look forward to talking with you and your grandparents this weekend. We can miss Italy TOGETHER!

I'm glad you are having fun in San Diego too. Can't wait to see you.
