Funmail #1

{Claire takes one last peek before it goes in the mail.}

I have a friend who lives in North Carolina.  Her name is Jordan Mangum.
She and I went to high school together, but she was older than me.
I idolized her, and think her family are one of the most creative people I know.
She and her husband, (Dr. Gooch) moved to AZ 
for a residency while my family lived in Mesa in 2008.  
Before our accident, we got our families together 
They would become some dear dear friends.  They moved on, and so did we.
Our children haven't seen each other since.
{Next year a visit to NC??}

Jordan and Dr. Gooch have four beautiful children.
Some of you may remember their daughter Lucy was attacked by a shark last summer.
ANYWAY, we decided to send fun mail to each other.
Anything obscure or peculiar that the mailman will deliver is our goal.
{Out instagram convo}
Last month we sent a telescope:
They sent back us a rock with about 13 stamps on it.
Just recently we sent a sheriff's badge.
 I took the children to Blickenstaffs to pick some treasures.
They helped me hunt the store for the perfect "fun mail".
Nothing that will break, bend, or get lost.
We will see how long we can go- are you still game Jordan?
