Write Your Grandma

 Letter:

Dear Grama and Grandpa,

Thanks for remembering my birthday and being so kind as to send me a present.

I'm going to be taking my road test in late July and soon as I can get enough money together, I'll be up to see you with my new car.

We bought a house and by the Fourth of July we hope to be moved into it. It's hard moving away from all your friends that you've known for 14 years, but at the same time it's fun to start all over again in a new neighborhood.

Take car of your selves and be sure to let everyone know I miss them.

Love

Carl
