Today I'm starting the school year. BUM BUM BUM! (No, not really). I like school, but sometimes I'm still happy to get a few days off school. For Italy I'm getting like a few weeks! My grades are excellent so the school said it's OK for me to take this trip. In fact, the school superintendent of the whole district said it's OK!
My dad told me not to get sick in school, because if I do before the trip, the venture to Italy is GONZO! So I have wipes, a small bottle of hand sanitizer, and if I see someone sneezing, I'll duck for cover! Hopefully I won't get sick and this trip is a GO!

P.S. I just thought about it. When I'm in Italy, all the Italian kids will be in school, but I won't! Whoo Hoo!
