Hello all ~<br><br>
I saw a thread about this not too long ago (can't find it now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">) and thought that it would be a wonderful thing to do! This blogger: <a href="http://soulemama.typepad.com/soulemama/love_in_the_mail/index.html" target="_blank">soulemama</a> has some very inspiring blog entries about her adventures in Family HS Package Swapping! Anyone want to give it a go? I'd be happy to coordinate it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I'd be in, but I am 99% sure that all swaps need to happen in the trading post. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

That's fine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> If we get enough interest, I'll start the "official" thread on the TP. Thanks so much for pointing that out!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

I just sent a package to my trading partner on Friday from the list that was on here a few days ago. I put travel magazines from the tourist information center. Then I put a seed from the tree in our front yard and a print out about it. I put info about the state capital, flower, bird and all the kind of stuff. Then we went out and took pictures of the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building and put them in the packet. Some of the pictures had Dakota in them as well. I think that's all I put. I hope she's not reading this.<br><br>
I hope that's what she had in mind. We had a great time gathering info and pictures. And it gives them information about our state.<br><br>

You can sign up on the official thread on the TP when I start it. I'll probably post a link here to direct you there. I just want to make sure we have enough interest first. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Then I will pair people up. The person you send to will not necessarily send to you. You can make requests of who you want your partner to be and I will try my best to pair you up with them. I will probably do this once a month! Personally, I'm VERY excited about the prospect of this happening! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

We would definitely like to do this again. Does the package I sent sound like what you are thinking about?<br><br>

I think this sounds fun too. My guy is almost five so he doesn't do much writing but he would love to help pick out stuff to send to a friend.<br><br>
Great idea!<br>

i'm exchanging with a few families. my kids and i have been going on walks to gather things, and we'll send a brochure about our itsy bitsy town and include some simple facts about our state. we will also make some crafts, take a few pictures, and probably buy a couple dollar store items for fun....and include a letter about what my kids enjoy - & who knows what else my crazy kids will throw in there. we are having a lot of fun doing this. we are SO excited!!!
