In the mist of all the packing, and running errands to get ready for our trip, we stopped by the post office. The kids' checked our homeschool P.O. box and they got mail! There was a letter for each one of them. They loved it. The letters were from their dad! He knows that we have been waiting for letters from our new pen pals, and he just wanted to give them a surprise. I love him to pieces!
Once in the car, they just wanted to open their letters. The big girl wanted to read it by herself and she truly tried. I helped a bit. She got home and wanted to write back to him, although he was already home!
