So why not have Emily (and Jennah my graduate) for that matter find a pen pal or two? Maybe even one in another country? Emily can certainly use the writing skills and who doesn't need a new friend?
Here are a few resources:
Homeschool Association for Military Families: Civilian kids welcome too!
This is a free program for homeschool kids ages 5-17. You can choose to make a $5+ donation and you will receive a Pen Pal Starter Kit in the mail.
The Student Letter Exchange has been around for 75 years. You have to choose a minimum of 4 pen pals @ $1.25 each. You select the country and the age of the pen pal.
And what about you? Do you want a snail mail pen pal for yourself? Here is a site for adults to seek out someone to write to: Old Fashioned Snail Mail Pen Pals
Do you have any sites that you'd like to add? Leave them in the comments!
