Learning the importance of correspondence



My five year old son Sebastian is struggling missing his friends. He is a very social being. So when I told him he can write his friends letters we got busy right away. He drew them pictures and signed his name. I addressed the envelopes and he put forever stamps on them. He drove his red Tesla to the mail box and mailed his very first letters. We check the Mail everyday for responses from his friends. So far he has gotten two back. In the day and age where we do most of our corresponding via email and text I though how wonderful I can share this with my youngest son.
