I thought about a Lamy student fountain pen and might be getting her a few next year (hey it's less than a month away and mommy and daddy have already blown their wad on Santa). I have been looking for some good pencils. She has a heavy hand and the regular #2s are snapping like dry twigs.
She is a perfectionist in that she gets frustrated when she sees my handwriting (No comments from the peanut gallery) and wants it to be like mine (PRINTING!! not the scribble I send you folks :).
Numbers are getting better the 5s still tend to look like S's. and the 3's look like E's b and d get confused. But over all she's doing great. Papa couldn't be prouder. Letters/Cards written by her are starting to go out. Some may have already received a few.
So, here is my question to you folks. Do you have little ones (preferably under 8)? Do THEY like getting mail, small trinkets? Are they interested in letters? How/Do you encourage their stories/writing?
She is now writing books with stories/drawings, so I have been assembling a few pages and stapling them together, a cover and 3-4 interior pages. She is getting a sketch book and some colored pencils for Christmas. The crayons are just not holding up, and she wants to use what I'm using.
So I went online to one of my accounts and let them both pick what they wanted. They chose this.
With that, don't forget the giveaway I'm doing for December. A Very nice box of Original Crown Mill and Arpa Handmade letter set. Only 19 days left to enter!!
Till next time..
