Letters for someone on a trip away from home keeping those memories
Having recently gone through the boxes that get filled when the children go through school, I came accross a couple of letters written for a ten year old who was on a school trip - it made us all laugh remembering the chaos that small kittens cause!
The big question - what do you write to a child on their first trip away from home with the school or the Brownies or the Cubs?
As home life is not very interesting to the average 10 year old - try telling a wild tale, a soothing story, or the antics of a couple of kittens, puppies, or even the goldfish or hampster.
This tales don't need to comprise of a long story, very simple short sentences describing situtations that can be understood and visualised by a ten year old.
The two letters here had Daddy being tied up with the computer wires by the cats and me being locked in the office in the process - they do move very fast!!!
The second letter had the lawn mower scaring the 5 month old kittens - straight up the tree - above the compost heap.... Well it was a good job I managed to catch the kitten as she started falling or she would have been covered in smelly tea bags and things!!!
I'm sure there is a letter where I describe an under 7's cricket match - being very similar to a Scottish dancing session - it has to be in a box somewhere!!!
