Sorry for the wait. I think I can get things done, and then it always takes longer than I think it will...
The above is the updated name list. Please check to make sure that your kiddos are on there.
I have PM'd the three mamas who had been checking the swap board. I can't stand the thought of homeschoolers without Valentines. So, assuming that I received addresses by tomorrow, they will be joining us.
I am planning to split the list, probably into thirds. This way each participant will be mailing to about 20 people.
In previous years some of the cards were handmade, some store bought. Some included stickers or another small surprise, some did not. All of the Valentines were loved!
Since we are splitting the list to make for a more reasonable number per person, I suggest mailing a separate card, in its own envelope, to each person on your list. That way every child gets mail to open. However if you object to this philosophically or financially, then send multiple cards in one envelope. You don't need to PM me about it, just make the decision that works for you.
PLEASE send out all of your Valentines. It is a bummer to work hard on Valentines and not receive as many in return. If you get stuck in a big bind, please let me know so that I can cover the kids you cannot do.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE... Send out cards to all the kids on your list.
Please mail your cards with time for them to reach their destination by Valentine's Day. However late is better than never.
Also, please do not complain if you mailed out 20 and only got 19. Things happen, we are all doing our best. In an ideal world you would get everything you deserve - but here it is a bit more of a leap of faith.
My kiddos are SO excited - hopefully yours are too!
Any questions? I will PM the address tomorrow!
