Dandelions in the Summer Time Breeze

Dear Emma,

Last week you received a very special surprise. I had told you that your 1st grade teacher would be sending you some mail, and when it arrived you were eager to open it. The small envelop revealed a card, which had one of your favorite flowers imprinted on it.

You always take extreme care in combing over your mail. You like to examine the envelop to see who its from, if its addressed specifically to you, and anything else about it that might be interesting. And the contents undergo the same level of detailed inspection. You admired your card before opening it. You read it aloud, and rushed for my computer at your teacher's request to email her a reply. I told you that we'd get to it the following day.

You have been in a back and forth exchange with your teacher for the past few days. She's told you what she's done over the summer, you've told her how you've been practicing your art/drawing skills, along with your reading, math and journal writing, she's told you just how proud she is of you for incorporating learning into your summer vacation, and you've checked my inbox daily for any sight of her name.

And then you've reminded me how you need your own computer! And I've reminded you to talk to your dad about that.
