When the new school year starts in a few weeks my youngest will be going into grade five which is when her school starts giving out school e-mail accounts.
I decided today it would be a good idea to talk with her a little about what was appropriate to send out in an e-mail and how it was done before the school did.
I also wanted her to muck around with it a bit before she started sending things to her friends so I set her up with a home e-mail account and I gave her my e-mail address and her father's e-mail address to practice with.
Tonight I got my first e-mail from her. Here is what it said:
Dear Leanne and **her Dad's name**,
We of the **our surname** kids* would like to inform you that you have not yet gotten us a dog.
I think it is very important that you get us a dog because it would teach us responsibility.
Now I believe that Dad would say " You have stuffed animal dogs!" as for Leanne, she would say, "convince your father!"
So Dad, a stuffed animal dog isn't REAL. As for Leanne, I hope this letter convinces Dad to get a dog.
Thank you for your time and patience and have a good day.
**Youngest daughter's full name**, daughter.
I think she's got it figured out.
Now I'm just waiting for her Dad's reply. I'll let you know how that works out.
