Dear Phil,
How has your summer been? Not too hot I hope. Did you get to visit
body They
your grandparents? Did you go on your trip to Toronto as you had hoped?
say Toronto is a beautiful city.
This is my second season at Camp Bellaire. I just passed my
swimming test. Now I can swim out to the raft and also use the boats. To pass I
had to jump into the water with my clothes on (as if I had just fallen out of a
boat). Then I had to take them off down to my trunks, even my shoes and
socks, and finally swim back to shore. It was tough, but I did it!
I’m looking forward to seeing you soon. There is lots of news to catch
up on!
Your friend,
Mike
