the send-off



here we are preparing the little journal packages for our new friends. i'm fascinated by different places, both near and far, so i used this as a geography lesson for my older daughter. she took great pride in matching the names with the journals, stuffing the envelopes and finding everyone's location on the map. the highlight of the day!

oh one more thing... happy birthday to my sister melissa!

What fun. It will make the package just that much more exciting knowing what went into it.

If you send me your snail mail address I'll send your daughter a post card from my area...just to add to her geography lesson :-)

I received my package on Saturday, and wow! What a fun way to lift my spirits. The yarn that you tied it with was awesome too. It WILL be reused. Thank you, Aimee! I feel blessed.
