  6. Dear Mrs Levy,

    My name is Miriam, and I am Michael's oldest sister. I am now in fifth grade, and I also have my own blog. Blogging is a big part of my life.

    I really enjoyed reading your blog and finding out what you did on the first day. Your class has so much fun!

    I couldn't believe that were bitten by a shark. I was a Junior Lifeguard this summer, and I was always nervous of sharks. I had to swim in the ocean every day. It was quite an experience! I saw a few stingrays, sand sharks and many jelly fish. Luckily, I did not get stung or bitten even though I accidentally stepped on a few sand sharks. It really freaked me out! Like Michael, I am also on a swim team, and I swim every day, but swimming in the ocean is definitely more fun.


  7. Ella had such a fun day today and is so excited about tomorrow. She keeps talking about the magic playdough and asked about pen pals.
