I’m almost ready to send out the swaps. I’m just waiting on the last 2 or 3 to arrive. They should be here within the next day or so, then it’s off to the post office for me x 43 boxes!! My husband (who is such a wonderful problem solver) is busy thinking up creative ways to repackage all the swaps and get them back to you. We visited the post office tonight looking at several options and the best idea seems to be to purchase boxes and then pay the post office the cost to mail it to your zip codes rather than go with the flat rate box. I’m going to to some trial runs with the Group 2 Literacy swaps because that’s the only group I’ve received all the swaps for so far.
We all need to give him a standing ovation for putting up with all of this!! 🙂 He’s put up with 60 boxes in our living room and has helped me count and sort and stack and collect and read all of your wonderful swaps!! 🙂 Thanks Mike!! 🙂
There is a chance that one of the math swaps will only receive 19 items back–there is one person I have not heard back from yet after e-mailing them several times, so I just want you to know that! 🙂
I’m busy working on the next swap idea…but it won’t happen until after school starts (Monday) and then swaps would be due near the end of October. I am also the popcorn kernel for our boy scout pack and so I’m busy organizing everything for that–because I didn’t have enough to do already! 🙂 After September 22nd, if you need some yummy boy scout popcorn–I can hook you up!! 🙂
Thinking ahead to the next swap…it seems that everyone has an interest in Math, Science, and Sight word swaps and I’ve had several suggestions about doing an electronic swap instead of a mail swap–we would all contribute an idea and then everyone would e-mail it to me to post in one place, or I could combine all the ideas and e-mail them out to everyone…still working on that part! 🙂
