We've really enjoyed this wonderful cultural exchange package. I don't have a picture of the letter since I don't want to put pics of children other than my own on the blog, but the letter was fantastic. O(5) said that the letter is the best part of the package! Thanks to our South African friends!!!
Also, I'd love to hear from everyone who participated in the cultural exchange. Please leave a comment or email me to let me know if you received your packages and how you liked them. I'd love it if you would leave a link to any blog posts about the exchange especially if you have pics of the things you sent and received in your packages. I've had lots of emails asking what kinds of things were included in the packages, so this could help a lot of people. I'll be organizing another exchange soon, so if you are interested in participating stay tuned....
