Gone for a Week

Hello, students!

Please write 5 questions for me about my summer trip. Post them in comments, and I will try to answer everything, even the difficult questions!

Some verbs you can use: wear (clothes), organize, manage, call, discuss, decide, be tired/worried/disappointed, write, read, send, receive, design, help, etc.

See you later, alligators!
