Sorry I haven’t written anything in a little while. I’ve been really busy… even without Tobi here.
He’s been gone for almost two weeks already, away at that weird football camp.
And at first it was really, really, really bad. Me and Tobias… We’ve never been away from each other before. Not overnight, at least. We’ve gone to sleepovers and stuff… But always together.
And even if we don’t get along all the time… He’s my best friend ever. And I can’t wait for him to come home. I miss him a lot (don’t ever tell him I said that!)
But I guess… there’s one good thing about him being gone.
I’ve been getting to spend LOTS of time with everybody. Just them and me, you know?
Grandpa’s been teaching me how to play chess. And I’m getting REALLY good at it. I almost beat him yesterday!
Tante Lina’s been visiting a lot, and letting me touch her tummy and ask lots of questions about the new baby. I think the baby’s supposed to come really soon… I’m so excited!
Last weekend, grandpa and Jonas built a special place for playing horseshoes in the backyard, so me and vovó have been trying it out. And I’ve been kicking her butt every time!
Let’s see… What else did I do?
Ooh! Tante Gabriela taught me all about some of the cool new plants she got for her garden. I can’t wait to show Tobi how much I know about them when he gets home.
I’ve been taking lots of long walks with Mama too. And it’s really nice to go without Tobias being there. He’s always running off and trying to explore… He doesn’t stop just look at stuff the way me and Mama like to.
And yesterday, me and Jonas took a special trip to the movies. It was the kind that Tobi hates – aliens and spaceships and all kinds of super cool stuff that he just doesn’t get.
But Jonas does. He gets it. And you know what? We had lots of fun together.
I just wish it could be like that all the time. But it can’t. Because he had to go and ruin everything by marrying Mama…
So anyway, I guess things have been pretty fun around here without Tobias.
But I still can’t wait for him to come home.
