It can be hard for children to be away from their friends and everyday routine. Two weeks may not seem like a very long time to us, by our 5 year old assures me that is equivalent to "forever". So to strengthen bonds while we are away (for any amount of time) we write letters to penpals, which includes family, friends, and people we have met along the way. It is also a fun and easy way to sneak in some handwriting and spelling practice!
