You know our school volleyball team won the local championship last year, right? Well this month we’re playing teams from other cities in the UK.
Next Saturday, we’re playing against a team in Scotland. It’s a long way, so we aren’t taking the train — we’re flying there! I’ve never been on a plane before, so I’m really excited.
I’m going to stay in Scotland until Monday. On Sunday, I hope to do some rock climbing. There are some great places for it up there. My friend Steve wants to goskiing, but I don’t think there’s enough snow.
I’ll write when we come back and tell you all about it.
