Greetings Kathule!
I'm excited to hear you are able to go back to school. I trust the Kenya Connect on-line classes have been helpful. I encourage you to stay focused at school and to work hard. It's always important to keep reading books outside of school too. It will help your reading fluency and comprehension. Did you know that kids who read more score higher on exams?

Today is is raining in Maryland and is quite chilly. Soon it will be Halloween which means children will dress up in costumes and knock on people's doors for "trick or treating." They hope to get a sweet treat! It will be a bit different this year with the pandemic.

Last weekend I went on 20 km bike ride through a beautiful park. It was along the Chesapeake Bay so we saw sailboats out on the water. It was quite lovely.

Good luck in school! I look forward to hearing from you again!
