A New Sport For me

I have done all sorts of sports but now I am going to try Tennis. I have gone to a camp and now I am taking lessons. My coach says I have a natural talent for the sport. I really like it, but it is going to take a lot of work to keep the skills I learned and am going to learn. It's not like team sports, your all by your self in the games and you don't have people taking your place or a coach always telling what to do. I am going to try and get on the Patrick Henry team next year in High School.

Making Edible Yarn

I don't usually write on the same day as the event, but this time it was special. My Gramma and I made edible yarn with the new edible yarn maker that came today in the mail. (By edible yarn, I mean pasta.) We had a lot of fun making the stuff, but we needed to put the yarn through the slot that made thicker and wider ones. We thought it was going to be a disaster, but it ended up being pretty good. (We made Cacio e Pepe.)
 Here was the box it came in,

 here is me working on making the yarn dough,
and here is why I called it yarn.

Were back home already

Hey everyone,
I'm back in San Diego. I liked Italy just like I always do. The last place we stayed was in Umbria, right outside of Assisi, at a place called Brigolante. There were two kids there named Niccol├│ and Leonardo. They were both younger than me but I still had a good time with them.

These are Leonardo, left, Niccol├│, middle, and me.

And this is their mom.

Their place was really nice, although it was raining most of the week. One of the days we went to a cooking lesson at one of the ten best in all of Italy. I had a great time.

Then another day we went to our friend Judith's house. She made and lunch and we all had a good time. She has been my friend since we lived in Italy and she is a really good cook too. Several years ago she helped me with my drawing.

That was all our last week in Italy. Now I'm back home.
See you next time.
