“Oh! I need my raincoat,” he said. “It is a rainy day.”

Dear Jamie,

How are you? Are you doing well at school? How are your parents doing?

It is snowing here. It is very cold. Yesterday, I went skiing. I wished you were with me. Next time you visit me, we shall go skiing together.

Remember to read books and write in your diary every day. Reading books is a very good hobby. I am glad that you read a lot of books. Which book are you reading now?

See you soon,

With love,

Grandma.
