I got mail!

I got two letters in the mail yesterday.

My name on the front, stamps: Old School Mail.




And not just any mail.


Letters from 2 fabulous 5 year old boys.




A crab to remember the fun that we had on Beach Day.  This friend is an expert beach explorer.  On one of our beach trips, he was organizing a group of older children getting crabs out of water between 2 big rocks.  I will always remember his happy confidence exploring crabs, and his curiosity about science stuff- "you do remember that I like to read non-fiction, don't you Ms Sandi?" and the fabulous creations that he made with bits and pieces that he found in the classroom.  


A love letter.  My friend hopes I am having a good summer and will see me soon.  I love him too. 


************
At the end of the school year, I send a note home with my address and the promise that if the kid lets write me a letter, I will send one back.

A real reason to write.


Now that I have finished bragging about getting TWO letters from TWO handsome young men (who each own a bit of my heart), I need to get letter writing.



#Kinderblog has a summer blogging challenge.  
Each week a different word to inspire a post.
Last week the word was brag.

  1. Scrumptious and worthy of bragging. I love getting and sending letters. Send me your address and I will send you a 'real' letter. :)
