An art pen pal update

Share & Comment

Just so you know where I am with this:

I matched everyone up last night and have started sending out e-mails with pen pal match info. This is a bit time consuming and I'm working my way through the list slowly, as I have time, beginning with the younger kids. If you've received an e-mail regarding one of your children, but not the others, please be patient. I should have the others to you soon(ish). I will work on this tonight as much as I can, and this weekend. FYI, Maia has dental surgery tomorrow (ugh!), so I doubt I'll get much of anything done tomorrow.

Also, if you sent me an e-mail today regarding an art pen pal, I will try to match up your child.

    Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into setting up the penpals! I can’t wait to get started. Will you post anything regarding instructing the first pen-pal correspondence?
    How does Maia do at the dentist? Any tips?

    Thank YOU! I can only imagine what a time consuming process this must be. Looking forward to seeing what comes from this exchange. I had a lot of international pen pals when I was in middle school, so I am very excited about my kids starting to do this now. Thank you again. And sending lots of comforting thoughts to you and Maia.

    What a great idea!
    If I’m not too late, I’d love to get an art-pal for one of my younger children. Marie-Kate is 5.5 and spends most of her time drawing and painting and talking. Then there’s Alexis, who will be 8 in February, who really only began to enjoy art about 18 months ago, now he’s a perfectionist. Finally, Gabrielle, she’s 9.5 and she adores art, reading, poetry. They are all bilingual (French/English).
    Hope to hear from you,

    Thank you so much for all your hard work with this pen pal arrangement. Such a generous gift of time. Margaret and I already worked on something for her pal yesterday…some fingerpainted leaves.
    Hugs to Maia!
