Both girls have signed up for pen pals through the lds site. Today they both received letters in the mail and were tickled. We don't receive a lot of mail here in Costa Rica, so it was double pleasure to receive these letters. Baby is working on her reply right now and teenager will be working on hers this weekend. On a date right now, so hope she will work on it soon. It is a great way to get them to practice their writing.
Writing is always a hard thing to get my kids motivated to do. One way has been the pen pals, another way my girls love is making lists. Any time we are going somewhere I ask them to make a list and they enjoy that. Today I looked at baby on the way to the store and realized she had Mountain Dew on one arm and Dr. Pepper on the other arm. I can't imagine who did that?
