Hello from the alternately snowy/muddy Midwest! Me and my little ones, Ella-41/2 and Paige-2, are eagerly awaiting the swap. Ella has already had me add about 15 things to a list she is making of what should be included. We are spending our seemingly endless winter here in Illinois doing LOTS of art projects, putting on performances for the family and making frequent trips to the library. Any bit of mail is always appreciated when you're a child, so a care package would make their week! Of course we don't yet know who our swap partners will be, but we can't wait to get started!
