Recently Cayden has been checking the mailbox every single day in hopes that someone has sent him a letter. I haven’t been sure who was going to write him, but sure enough a few days ago he received a letter from Jack. This was a great day for him, and has inspired more writing.
Tonight we declared it letter writing night. Cayden wrote a letter to his Compassion child, Wonsli, and one to Jack. Deacon wrote a letter to some of his favorite people, Shawnah & Kent. Amos wrote a letter to his cousin, Lilly. Story wrote a letter to Mimi for her birthday, which is in December. She doesn’t know the order of her months yet!
I loved it, and hope that they all get letters back. I think writing letters is not as common any more, and I need to write more letters. Maybe I’ll do that this week. I’ll make this a letter writing week. Or, maybe we can do this every Sunday. We’ll make Sunday our letter writing days.
When’s the last time you wrote a letter that wasn’t via email? Maybe we should all do this more.
