A Flying Thank You for Memorandum Monday
A couple of weekends back I spent a big part of the day in Bath, which is around a half hour away from here. Luke was at a bowling fundraiser for Civil Air Patrol. He isn't really good at bowling, so they are lucky that most of his sponsors gave him a flat rate. I made a few little cards for him to send out as thank you notes.
It was then I learned he had no idea where the address label went or the stamp...or even the return address label, which then prompted a quick lesson. Got me thinking of when I learned how to address an envelope. It was probably around third grade. When quizzed, both kids told me that since they don't have to mail things all that often, they didn't really know but yes, they learned it in third grade.
Guess it was good training as I had him fill out the envelope for his Civil Air Encampment application....life skills. On a side note, the fund raiser was for Aerospace Education and I can't wait to hear what exciting things he's learned. I'll stick with teaching him the fundamentals...like where the stamp goes.
Happy Monday! I'm here talking about letters and mail for Memorandum Monday with my friends over at Sian's From High in the Sky blog. If you sponsored Luke, you have my thanks and a little card is flying your way!
