Then the earthquake in New Zealand happened and my little girl's world got smaller. She remembered getting a postcard from a family who lived in the very city hit the hardest. We were able to pray for that family not knowing how they were doing after the earthquake. We were able to do that just because of Zoe and Playing by the Book!
Then she (Zoe) came up with the brilliant idea of a picture book swap, Perfect Picture Books by Post. We were all about it and super excited when we were matched with a family in Germany (my oldest is a German major).
Our package came the other day. I wish that my camera took better pictures (or that I took better pictures with my camera) because the envelope was colorful and wonderful and...I have no pictures. I also feel a little creepy that I just sent mine via Amazon because my world is crazy and I couldn't carve out time during business hours to go to the post office.
See the cat was looking for someone specific to dance with and it was NOT the hamster.
We've had so much fun participating in the swap! The whole process was loads of fun; the girls deciding which books for us to send, receiving our swap, and reading our swap (again and again).
Thanks Zoe and thank you Kerstin!!
