This week we painted some lovely pear blossoms in our still life.  This time we painted on index cards so we could send a little cheer to our loved ones this Spring.

We let them dry and today during literacy time, we learned how to write a letter, where to put the address and the stamp.

We also had our thank you notes we had written for our friends at Salmon Days to mail.

We went inside and asked the postal worker what will happen to our mail after we put it in the slot.  She told us that it is headed to a sorting facility in Yakima where it will be sorted by machines and sent off to the correct post offices.

Tomorrow we will guesstimate how long the mail will take to get to it’s destination.
