ninety-four: a letter for Alexander and Ethan

Today’s mail goes out to two young men who are working on their letter-writing and penmanship skills. I applaud their mother for instilling such timeless moxie—girls are going to swoon for this in ten years time.  Alexander (nearly twelve) and Ethan (nine years of age) are brothers. With any luck at all they’ll like snail-mail-turned-paper-airplanes as much as they adore Gracie, the family dog.

ninety-four:

Alexander,

How are you? My name is Lauren and I love writing letters. Your Mom told me about you so I decided to send you a letter.

She said you’re a smart cookie, and that you always have your nose in a book. I love to read too! What are you reading now? Do you have a favorite genre of literature? I really like fiction—it’s the perfect way to escape into another world for a bit. My nightstand is stacked tall with books. I only wish I had more time to read.

I hear you also like to play soccer. Do you play on a team? What position do you play? When I lived in London, I would watch soccer games at the local pub. Soccer is a big deal in the UK and the games were really lively and exciting. I bet you’re looking forward to spring so you can get back on the field!

Good luck finishing up school for the year—are you counting down the days until summer vacation? Keep up all the learning and reading!

Fondly,

Lauren

ninety-four and-a-half:

Ethan,

How are you? My name is Lauren and I love writing letters. Your Mom told me about you, so I decided to write you a letter.

She filled me in on your love of sports, especially football. What’s your favorite team? Now that the season is over are you going to start watching baseball? I had so much fun watching March Madness. I wish my team, the Syracuse Orangemen, had held on a little longer.

I hear you are also interested in Europe. I love Spain and Italy. My most favorite city is Barcelona—its so full of culture and excitement. I hope you get to visit some day. And Italy is an eater’s paradise! Do you like pasta? Italians make some of the most delicious pasta! And pizza!

I hope you have a good rest of the school year—only a few more months to go! And best of luck on the football field!

Fondly,

Lauren
