Dear aunt Mary,
How are you? It is almost 6 months now since we heard from you.
Jim has got a new job as an engineer on the air base only 10 miles from our home. He is very pleased with it as it is a very interesting job.
Tom has started school and is very proud of his new blue school bag that he got for his birthday in June. Lisa is growing fast. She can almost walk by now. Tom is very fond of her and likes to play with her. Every day when he comes home from school, he tells her all about the things he has learned. She seems to enjoy it very much but I don't think she understands a word .
As you know it will soon be my birthday so we have invited all the grandparents to dinner. It would be nice if you could come, too.
Please let me know which train you will come on, and I shall meet you at the station.
