When I think of "mail" I suddenly hear Steve's voice singing "Mail Time!" I don't remember the words exactly and I'm refusing to go find it on Youtube.
In this world of technology when almost everything is digital it is even more exciting to get a piece of real mail. I don't remember the last time I got a letter in the mail. I mean I got birthday cards for my birthday but a letter? I don't know.
These days "Mail Time" means packages. Around here it's usually a box from Amazon or another vendor with a review product for the Homeschool Review Crew. I love getting packages.
The girls would get so excited when the doorbell rang and it was UPS or FedEx or maybe in USPS with a box. They were excited because 9 times out 10 it was for them. They associated the brown UPS truck with Sonlight our favorite home school curriculum. I remember Turtlegirl getting so excited when she a UPS truck at a neighbor's house. "Look, mommy, they must use Sonlight, too!"
