Runs in the family

My letter writing project has inspired my 8-year-old daughter. She's been asking lots of questions about letter writing, and she's been writing letters lately. Ever since she's known how to write, she has written letters, but with my new project underway, she's started writing more.

I don't think she'll be able to keep up with one a day, but she's having fun. She decorates the envelopes, even making some on her own. And, she makes her own notecards. So far, she hasn't received any responses, at least not from her little third-grade friends. In the past, she's exchanged letters with my aunt.

Maybe her letters will encourage her friends to pick up this old-fashioned practice!

My mom doesn't have a phone or a computer...and she lives in Arkansas while I live in Oregon. We write letters.
