fun stuff : get a pen pal

posted on: Friday, April 1, 2011

Postcard sent by Miss Sophie who is just 3. Don't you just love her drawings? The preschooler informed me that it's a picture of the two of them.

So the baby space preschooler's lovely little girl bestie Sophie and family have just moved to Perth. We were very sad to see them go but very happy that they're having a fabulous fresh start (they drove from Sydney to Perth. Drove!). We're also happy that now we can write them and the preschooler can have a pen pal.

Did you have a pen pal when you were a wee one? Or if not, did you want one?

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Hi Bron,
    So, so lovely this card! I had once a penpal, but can't remember her name, she was from Germany and I believe we were 9. It would be lovely for the kids to stay in touch, although Perth is far away (different timezone too?) it would be fun for later when they are bigger right? Have a good weekend!

  2. I had a pen pal from when I was 10 until around year 8. I'm not sure why we stopped writing, but we did. Now I suddenly miss her after all these years!! x

  3. Oh, I had heaps on the go at the same time, Bron! There used to be this company which distributed lists to schools with people's details etc and you could choose your penfriends. Did anyone else have that? I kept writing to many for years and then we stopped writing. No idea why. I'm keen for the pixies to have penpals. J x

  4. I did, and it was great! I miss writing those long letters....OMG...they drove???? ;)

  5. Awwww. That brings back great memories! I had two penpals back in the day. One in Germany and one in France. I never met either of them. It was so much fun though. I always wondered what happened to them...

  6. Aw that is the sweetest! I hope they continue to stay in contact over the years (wouldn't that be amazing?). I love the drawing of the two of them. So cute!
    I did have a few penpals and even now, have e-pen pal. We're still in contact after over 6 years!

  7. Awesome! So glad that they can keep in contact..
    We miss you guys xxx

  8. Aww..that is so sweet and the little drawing just melts my heart! Have a fantastic Monday, my dear

  9. I always wanted a pen pal! I tried with a few friends that moved away but I wasn't very good with the follow through. This post card is adorable!
