The girls and I went to the store to pick up diapers and water bottles one afternoon and came out with everything we’d need to make everyone a pen pal kit. Ha! That happens to everyone, right? With being in the military, and having friends in the military, we are all too familiar with “good byes”. We decided to put together pen pal kits for themselves and their friends before we move to Virginia.

They picked out envelopes, cards, pens, pencils, erasers, crayons, glitter glue and stickers for their best friend, and extras for themselves. After all, they needed a kit too. It was fun to see how excited they were to pick out just the right stickers that they thought their friends would love.
I also told them that they could pick out a chapstick and a treat because—girls. These are just things that all girls like.
