A Book, and also Bye-Bye

This is a book that I ordered from Amazon which just arrived in the mail. It's called "El Alquimista", and it's the first novel that I have read in spanish. Definitely a good read; good enough for me to buy it myself.

The weather was still gorgeous today, and I hope that it stays that way because I am leaving tomorrow with my team to participate in the soccer games in Juneau. I will be back on Sunday. Mom gets in tomorrow for a quick turnaround, so stay tuned...


  1. good luck in the soccer Levi!!!

  2. Yell at them in Spanish and confuse them!
