                  Hi Grandma,

                  Wow, it was great to see you last weekend. You are
                  so funny and nice. I wish you could stay at our house
                  all the time. I miss you already. Can you come back 
                  again soon? I hope so! Well, since you left, things
                  have gotten back to normal. Mom and I went swimming
                  yesterday, which was a lot of fun. Dad and George 
                  had a good time at the baseball game, too. George
                  wants me to thank you for his new baseball bat. He
                  got a double and a home run in the game, so he was
                  very happy. He thinks the baseball bat is the reason
                  he did so well. I laughed. It is a great bat, but 
                  George did the work! Anyway, like I said, he really 
                  wants to thank you. Oh, I almost forgot. Thanks for
                  the doll house you bought me. It is so beautiful. 
                  I love it. 
                  
                  Well, I have to go. I have a lot of homework to do 
                  tonight. Take care of yourself and I hope to see you soon.
                  
                  Love,
                  Bonny
