Our new pen pal, Olive.

Maisy's schoolmate, Olive, moved back to the UK last week.  To help her get settled in her new home and to let Olive know her friends still think of her, Maisy had the idea to write her a note and give her some artwork from her friends from California.

Maisy drew Olive a picture of them together on the beach. She also made a paper puppet Maisy on a stick to send to Olive with a nice note saying that she missed her and hoped to visit one day.

Olive also has a little sister Maren's age, so Maren drew a picture, that way Rosie wouldn't feel left out.

Maisy and Maren were very happy about their combined efforts!

Maisy also got to learn where the UK was on a map and how long the post might take to get there.  Of course, Maisy was much more into the fact that her friend got to move to a land where queens, princes and princeses actually exist!

She was so proud to get to put her post up in the window to send to her friend!

Hopefully we'll get to keep this going for a while.  It's fun to hear what Maisy thinks is important to tell her friend.
