Summer Swaps

We signed up for a great summer swap here a couple of months ago.

Last Sunday evening, in a frenzy that can only be brought on by a looming deadline, I finished packing up all the lovelies we had been collecting for our swap friends. Monday morning we made a beeline for the post office and sent them off.

Thing One received his package the same day. It was full of goodies from Iowa, sent from Toby. Mama loved their list of things and why they included them.
Thing One loved the geode, because he got to smash it with a hammer and see what was inside. We had just studied rocks and beginning geology the week before so that was great timing!
And the giant paperclip got tons of oohs and aahs!

There were so many other awesome things in this package: popcorn, a coloring book, a prairie sounds cd, a homemade bag full of homemade crayons shaped like cars, a state pencil, an Iowa flag, a drawing and family photos.

Daniel in Ohio sent Thing Two an awesome package as well! He received a (very professional looking) book All About Daniel, a handmade bead bracelet, and a handmade mini-feltboard with three bears and a tree inside.

We could tell he worked really hard on making such a cool book!

Thanks so much to both families, and to the host sites! We had a great time learning about new friends and places.
