Dear Christina,

Hello! It has been a long time since I heard from you. How have you been? How is the weather in Chicago?

I have been busy with my school and girl scouts. We just finished our school tests, so I have some time to catch up on things, like writing to you! I think I have done well in my tests, I am hoping for good grades. Do you know what, I sold 1000 boxes of cookies for my Girl Scouts Troupe! That is more than anyone I know! What have you been doing lately?

I hope you can come and visit me this summer. Chicago is a fun place, especially during summer. I will show you around the city - the Lake Shore Drive, the museums, the downtown, and so on. Let me know if your parents will allow you to visit me for a few days.

Your friend,
