Dear Hilda and Eyglˇ,
Takk fyrir a­ koma ý skˇlann okkar. It is wonderful seeing Hilda and Eyglˇ from Iceland. First, Eyglˇ showed the class their coins. They had different coins than our coins. The people told us their names. Their names were Hilda and Eyglˇ. Third, you told us about the volcano that erupted. When the volcano erupted Eyglˇ had to move. It was nice seeing Hilda and Eyglo come.

Dear Hildo and Eyglˇ,
I learned the red on the flag is the volcano and the blue stands for the sea. The temperature is Celsius and our temperature is Fahrenheit. We have volcanoes here in the United States. Money is very different in both countries. Your money has animals on it. Our money has pictures of past presidents. It was nice having you visit us.
