Yesterday I had my first practice at Don Bosco. I was pretty nervous about it since I still don’t know Italian that well but it turns out there was a kid there who was almost fluent in English. His Mom is Australian and he goes there every year to visit her. Practice went well; I felt like I was about equal with the other kids, so I’m looking forward to going again tonight. We have practice from 17:00-9:00 every night for the first two weeks because my age group is divided into 3 teams and the coaches want to see where to place the kids.
A few days ago we went to a science museum it had lots of cool interactive stuff. While we were there we built a Da Vinci bridge. A Da Vinci bridge is made entirely out of interlocking sticks and is apparently still very strong. We decided to test that.
