I grew up in a family where we were expected to write letters, and now that expectation, is moving to the next generation in the form of thank you letters. In fact, it was fun to see how the boys would express their thanks for Christmas gifts.
|As we began, Aidan, who is seven, was rather reluctant to stop his play, but seemed a bit more interested when he saw that I brought out the fancy thank you notes.|
|Thanking an Uncle and Aunt for great gifts.|
|Shane, who is four, was glad to write his thanks in pictures.|
|He included a few words for me to translate.|
With practice, the boys will learn good letter writing form, and hopefully, with the knowledge of the pleasure it brings the recipient, will learn to enjoy the lost art of letter writing.
