Yesterday morning as we were doing our school, we were so thrilled to see the postman pull up outside our house! Our mail usually gets dropped into our post box further up the lane (in which snails often chew out letters!), but if we are blessed enough to get a package, our postman drives right up to the house! :)
Reading Aloud Our Lovely Letters
We had a package all the way from the "R" family in America! We were all thrilled to find handwritten letters (I love handwritten letters!), maple candy for our whole family to try and enjoy, and thoughtful gifts for our children! This was our very first time trying maple candy and we LOVED IT!!! It was so good!
Mmmm Maple Candy...Our New Favourite Sweets!
Maple Sweets For A Sweet Girl
Next we were blessed to find a beautiful hair clip for Amy, silly straw glasses for Dylan and a pretty handmade skirt for Meg! The straw glasses were a hoot! Dylan could barely suck on the straw for laughing! :) Meg's skirt is just so sweet and is so well made; she loves to point at the different animals and makes their sounds, so I guess it could be viewed as educational too! Our family considers it a wonderful thing to be in correspondence with other Christian families around the world!
Dylan Made His Last As Long As He Could!
"Thank you For My Skirt"
"R" family thank you so very much for being such a
blessing to our family! Your thoughtfulness means so much to us!
