Since ever since.

WHen I was a teen i had over 30 penpals! Can you believe it? I wrote letters, made book marks, used stickers and sent several letters out every day.

I did have a favorite penpal named Vanessa. She always included alot of artsy handmade notions in her letters. We keep in touch on facebook today.

I recently signed up for Swap-bot. Swap bot is like a modern pen-pal association to me.

Some swaps are a bit more than letter writing, but most are of little to no cost.

--the cost of postage and time.

I will post the results of my first few swap in the coming weeks so stay tuned!

Our home interview ended a little before 8 o'clock last night.
Hopefully it will be ready within the week to send to HKI and DCF.
It is a nice feeling to be closer to our foster babes.

It made me happy to hear that our FDS worker wishes we "were already licensed" because of our the cuteness of the kids room!


lots of love to you my friends,

Pen pals are always fun, that sounds like a cool concept!

Very nice to hear the interview went well - of course the room is cute - we have all seen the cuteness level! Even better will be the good environment for foster children -

Swap-bot sounds like a lot of fun. Good wishes that you'll be fostering in no time.

So glad that your home interview went well!
I had pen pals when I was younger, too. My dad is a minister and we traveled a lot when I was a kid and I made several good friends that I became pen pals with. We still keep in touch and see each other once in a while.
