Alexis's mamaw has this brilliant idea about how we could teach Alexis about other cultures.
So here is mamaw's idea:
Each month we will pick a different country and learn about their traditions and customs. We will learn each chosen country's traditions by reading books we find at the library. During that month, we will devote one day to live according to the customs and traditions of that culture. (Ex. Preparing a meal centered around the traditional cuisine)
I just love this idea and Alexis is very excited about it. I thought if Alexis had a pen pal it would really add to the whole experience. Alexis says she wants a pen pal from London. I will have to work on that...but for now I signed us up for Postcrossing, a postcard exchange.
We hope to get lots of postcards and we are open to receiving letters, too. Alexis will be posting some of her experiences at her new blog http://alexisworldtraveler.blogspot.com/
