I feel like snail mail is becoming a lost "art" to the younger generation because they just don't get the experience these days with electronics. I remember how exciting it was as a kid to see an envelope with my name on it! Blake loves checking the mail and helping us sort through it, and… Continue reading Snail Mail Sight Words
