A Typical Day at Fattoria Viticcio

Hi Everyone

I'm back from camp. The first day was rough but then it got better. If I come next year, I want to go again but it will be in a different place. The first day was rough because I just got there and was tired and didn't know anybody. It got better because I started to get to know people.

The usual day at Fattoria Viticcio is that we wake up, have breakfast and then we do homework or some sort of work. I'm doing homework in the middle of the summer because I am going into middle school and I need to be ready. Also, Camilla needs to do homework too so it gives me something to do also. I do math and I do reading comprehension and I do my blog entries. For a while I did my reading for People to People. Now I'm done and I did the test and I got 100%. Sometimes I read my book Seekers, a book I got for my birthday. Since I finished the last Harry Potter book I had no more to read so I started Seekers. It's about three bears who get separated from their families.

Me Reading Seekers

After homework Camilla usually comes knocking on the door and we play. Then we eat lunch together or separate and then we play some more. Then around 2:30 or 3:00 we go swimming. Then after we get out, dry off and we watch TV in the pool room. They redid it so they have a big TV like ours.

Drying Off

Then for merenda (snack) we go out and get gelato. Sometimes we walk around the piazza and we see friends or we don't. Then we go into the COOP. The COOP is the grocery store in Greve. For the ones who have been here you would know what the COOP is. In the piazza on Market Days and other days we go in and see Bruno, my good old buddy at the gastronomia.

Sometimes my friend Tommy comes over. Today he can't come over because he is going to Austria and comes back 4 days after we leave for home. I'd like someone to come over today because Camilla went to go to her grandfather's birthday and won't come home until this evening.

Tommy and Me

Sometimes other friends come over too. They're usually kids from school here.

Whose Feet Are These?

They belong to Tommy, Me, Francesca, and Camilla. We're upstairs in my apartment.

Yesterday Camilla had dinner with us and slept at our place in the top bunk. It's fun when we get to sleep together.

Well, I gotta go. We're off to Panzano--a village up the hill.

Tomorrow I get to go to La Cantinetta di Rignana

See you next time.

Casey, if you didn't have any boring days, we'd never get any blog posts!

Ciao KZ,
I can just picture the place where you are staying and the piazza in Greve.
It is a wonderful place and you are so lucky to return there each year to visit your friends.
I can tell you are having a lot of fun.
I will be off to England soon and will check your blog when I return.
