You Capture – Letters

This is my first week to join the You Capture carnival hosted at I Should Be Folding Laundry. This week the theme is “Letters” which I interpreted a few different ways.

My first photo is of a letter we received from the child that we sponsor through Compassion International, Casbert. This was the letter that made me cry as I read all the things that he and his family were able to buy with the extra money we sent him for his birthday last year.

The next one is of a twig that The B Man brought to me the other day saying “Look Mom, it’s the letter “Y!”

And lastly, several of the books that reside on the shelf in the boys’ playroom, with lots of letters on them!
To join You Capture take a trip on over to I Should Be Folding Laundry. You can wash and dry that last load tomrrow…
