Coming Up: Elena's 5th Birthday (REPOST)

**REPOST--If you already responded, I sent you address information today!

This is just a temporary post.

Elena's 5th birthday is April 30th, 2010. She has been adamant that "when you are 5, you can do everything by yourself". Well, of course, we're all for that--but we are realistically hoping that The Turning Of Five will bring E some new independence.

One thing E LOVES is mail. She doesn't know how to read yet, but it is emerging. She does recognize that some mail has her name on it, and appreciates pictures and notes from kids her age (or from parents of kids her age). We also send mail, although it can be a long wait time, and for that I apologize. We have to start VERY early to get lots of letters out on time.

Would you like to send E a birthday message? If so, contact me at cpmom2009 AT yahoo DOT com (also a link through the About Me portion of the blog). Once we have your address, we tend to send mail at semi-regular intervals (major holidays, etc). I do NOT share addresses with anyone else.

Getting mail from other places also helps us with geography--she knows G lives in Tasmania, W lives in Texas, R lives in Hawaii, for instance (and can find them on a map). If English isn't your best language, don't worry, we'll love it anyway!

For sure...when E is 5, one thing she WILL do by herself is...GET THE MAIL!

Hi Ami Georgina has received E's letter and we are leaving it a little later to reply as we want to send her a birthday present in time for her birthday so if you are worried it isn't coming this is why. I will put together something my daughter Lucy (who is 5) would like and hope that E likes it too. Take care.
