The last of the letter updates for Spring 2016 is Prisca! For Prisca, I received two letters including a progress report with a new photo. Both letters were short and sweet but a nice little update!

For her spring letter, I included some stickers, coloring pages, bookmarks, a kite (see above) and a letter updating her with anything going on currently and with a reply to her most recent letters.

Spring 2016 – Veasna

Veasna’s update today! I usually only get one or two letters a year from her which is understandable seeing that she literally lives across the world from me! I always enjoy her letters because, like Ingrid, they have to be translated and usually include drawings of items that I may not even be familiar with! It’s interested to see her culture!

For his spring letter, I included some stickers, coloring pages, bookmarks and a letter updating her with everything going on currently and with a reply to her most recent letter. Like Ann and Elizabeth, I also included a shark’s tooth for her as well as a little something extra. I usually don’t send Veasna birthday gifts (which I’ve mentioned before) due to Cambodian culture so I try to send a little something extra randomly throughout the year for her instead.

Spring 2016 – Ingrid

For Ingrid, I’ve received one letter. Her letters are always super cute with drawings around the edge or making up the letter. It’s also always interesting to get her letters since they have to be translated!

For her spring letter, I included some stickers, coloring pages, bookmarks and a letter updating her with everything going on currently and with a reply to her most recent letter as well. I also included that I’ll be having a baby soon which she is familiar with since she just had a baby brother born last year!

Spring 2016 – Curlan

Curlan’s update was pretty simple. He doesn’t write often which was a surprise to me at first since he’s one of my oldest and only in the Caribbean but I did receive a progress report recently, a flyer about his community and a letter as well.

For his spring letter, I included some stickers, coloring pages, bookmarks and a letter updating him with everything going on currently along with a reply to his most recent letters.

Spring 2016 – Michael

Michael’s most recent letter was from his father. He is usually the family member to write to me so it’s always nice having a familiar person writing. He keeps things simple but always updates me on what’s going on with Michael. On this letter, Michael also drew a few things for me which I thought was sweet as well.

Spring 2016 – Ruth

For Ruth, I had only received one letter since I last updated and this letter was from her father. He was sweet and short but nice to update me on what was going on with Ruth. She seems to have a large family so I have no doubt that I’ll probably hear from other family members in the future as well. He mentions that she is still in nursery school and she talks about me often at school which I thought was super cute!

Spring 2016 – Ann Grace

For Ann, I received two letters since I last wrote to her. One from her and one from her uncle. The most recent was from her uncle and he said she was away at school so that’s why she was unable to write. As always, everything was good with Ann. She’s getting older and spending more time with chores and school so I’ve noticed her letter frequency slowing down and they are pretty to the point which is fine. I’m just glad to hear everything is going well for them!
