surprise in the mailbox   nick's letter to avery   P3230112

nick was bugging us in the bedroom on and off through the predawn hours. “how do you spell avery?” … “which way does a mailbox flag go to send mail?”

long forgotten by the afternoon, i went outside and noticed the mailbox flag was up for no good reason -- and found this hand-made envelope inside, complete with crayon replica of a postage stamp on the back. nick had spent the wee hours of the morning composing a 2-sided letter to his friend, making an envelope for it, and putting it out in the mailbox before anyone else got out of bed.

the complete address, as shown here is “AVERY”, so i'm not sure it could've gotten very far even if our postmaster was willing to forgive the missing stamp.

Neeta Lind: Who's Avery and what did the letter say? avery is his little friend that we took to omsi this weekend. monday morning nick woke up and made a letter and homemade envelope including a colored-on stamp.

the letter said something like:

“dear avery, i want to trade (spelled chrad)”

we asked nick what he meant and he said he wanted to trade bakugan with avery but couldn't spell bakugan!!! :)
Neeta Lind: Criminally cute
