A letter to Ellen
For anyone who is recently tuning in, my two youngest girls (16 and 12) are at a summer camp that my girls have attended every year for many summers. Except, that this is Ellen's first year, so many letters are exchanging hands...this"camp" is very old fashioned and campers are completely "unplugged". They can only communicate with loved ones by "snail mail". We can email a central email address; the camp prints the letter out, gives it to the camper and they (hopefully) respond by sending back a "real" letter. Of course, we can send good old fashioned letters too, but when you are missing your little ones, it sure is nice to be able to write and know that they get it the very next day! I have written and emailed almost every day and this morning - I was trying to think of something that a twelve year old would like to read and this came to me: I am adding pictures for the blog's sake, but the email went without the cute photos!
