Labas! that means hello in
Lithuanian. my name is Vakare . Lithuania in known for amber. Long time ago, when there was a storm, the sea would wash up pieces of the amber, but now amber is rare to find. I liked my country much, but my parents got a job in America. We flew with a plane over the seas.I did not like the plane very much, because my ears hurt, but the juice was good. at last! we came to Minneapolis Minnesota!! I was tired!
I miss my old country though. But I got used to Minnesota at least! And now I go to Brimhall school! and I love my new home!
