It's always the best to get mail as a kid.
This envelope didn't stand a chance against a 5 year old opening it.
Seeing what Giovanni sent him.
Happy faced boy.
How cute is this? Giovanni's letter to JT.
He also included a little gift for JT. A watercolor TMNT page.
JT was ready to reply to his letter. We got out his writing paper and pencil. We talked about what JT would want to write. Once he figured that out, I wrote it myself on the paper above so he could then just reference it for his own letter.
He started out with Giovanni's letter next to him as he began to write his name.
Trying to teach JT how to space between new words. He loves to either smoosh words together or have a HUGE gap between them. All part of the learning process ;)
Pause to take a 10 second break and smile for Mommy.
Great thing about using pencil is that it's so forgiving when mistakes occur.
JT also included a little gift for Giovanni in his response. I think that was one of his favorite parts of his reply, going to the store and selecting the best gift for Giovanni.
Seal the envelope up!
At the post office weighing the envelope to see how much postage we would need.
Stamped, sealed, and ready to head to Florida!
Away it goes!!! JT is looking forward to receiving his next letter from Giovanni.
