There were three kids, siblings, that used to come to the library regularly to read to Demi. I chatted with them for a couple years - also had nice talks with their parents - and looked forward to their coming. Now we are penpals. All three kids have been writing steadily during the summer and I respond as quickly as I can. They decorate their letters with artwork; I do too.
Today I was wondering where their next letter was - they seemed a little late this time - and lo! the packet of three arrived in today's post. I've already answered so they should hear from me soon.
