Love in the mail

The most challenging part of living in the US is the distance from family in Sri Lanka. This year Anjali and I started a new tradition of making hand-made birthday cards for her grandparents. Since becoming a mom I have realized how many cool art supplies exist now a days. Its not like when I was a child when we had BAD crayons, color pencils, and water colors, and that was it. Here is the most recent card she made for Achchi with finger paints and glitter glue. Oh and I specifically wrote on the envelope DO NOT BEND, and Achchi called last night to say that it was stuffed into her mailbox folded in four (next time I'll write it in Sinhalese). She delightfully straightened it out to much joy.
