As some of you know, my oldest (aka son #1) is currently at Army basic training in South Carolina. He'll graduate soon (hooray!), but it's been strange not talking to him on the phone and emailing. BUT one of the good things that has come out of this is the letters.
He's been writing (and complaining about not having spell-check). We've received many notes, and so have both sets of his grandparents, his brother and his sister. Real letters. Long. Hand-written (printed, not cursive--see my Cozy Chicks post last week). Wonderful letters that are full of information about his days.
And we've written back. A lot. Lots of cards and long notes and jokes and stories and football scores.
It made me realize how much I miss letters. How strange it is to see an envelope in the mailbox that's hand-written, not computer generated. I send a lot of cards, but I think I need to start sending more letters. Not sure to whom just yet, since son # 1 will be getting his computer back soon, but someone. :)
Do you send a lot of hand-written notes? Get many?
