Hello future readers!
I'm SO excited! I get to go to West Virginia again! Lemme tell ya how it happened.
It's been really hot here in Springfield, so yesterday, I didn't really feel like going outside, so I just stayed home, hung out in my room and played records.
My mom knocked on my door and told me I had a letter from Vivienne! All right!
I love it when I get mail from her. It's so much fun having a pen pal!
I opened the envelope and found a letter and a plane ticket! Outta site!
Here's what the letter said:
Holy smokes! This plane ticket has Monday's date on it. That's in 2 days!
My mom poked her head back in the door.
"Are you surprised?", she asked, smiling.
"Am I ever!", I answered. "Did you know about this, Mom?"
"Yes, Mrs. Walton and I talked about it 2 weeks ago. We agreed that Vivienne's parents would pay for you to visit this time, and then when Vivienne comes to see you, I'd buy her ticket."
I jumped up and hugged her. "Vivienne and I have the most dynamite parents in the whole world."
"OK, stop all this hugging, and get packing. You leave the day after tomorrow."
She went downstairs to go start dinner. I put my records and record player away, and got my camp bag from out of the closet.
I must have packed and unpacked at least 5 times! I know I wouldn't need much, because Vivienne and I like to share clothes, but I wanted to make sure to take just the right things.
Man, it's gonna be so much fun seeing Vivienne and her parents. I really love her mom and dad, and how they treat me just like a member of their family. And it'll be great to see Betta, and the other kids too. (Even Turkey Kevin, C,J, and Little G). I guess I'll tell my other friends about this trip after church tomorrow, so they won't think I've been captured by aliens or something! *giggle*
So future readers, my next post will be from Falling Waters, West Virginia! YIPPEE!
