I wanted to encourage my kiddos to keep writing over the summer because some of them were just starting to get the hang of it towards the end of the year and I didn't want those skills to slide. So I gave them stamped envelopes (addressed to the school, because I'm there now for summer school) and fancy printer paper to write to me. I received one (let me preface this by saying sometimes I would talk about taking my pup to the vet for her skin allergies): Dear Ms. KC, Is your dog still itchy? You are in my heart. Love, "Johnny" I melted a little bit. :wub: What a pick-me-up!
