Where do I start? Jake's been gone for about a month now. He's stationed in Georgia doing his mobilization training. He's a member of Indiana's 76th with the National Guard. His spirits are up, but to be honest mine aren't the best right now. I'm feeling lonely and since he recently broke his phone my only way of contacting him is through mail. I've sent a few things already. Mostly just things he requested, like a new pair of headphones, a book, and hand sanitizer (they sometimes go nearly a week between showers, yuck). Nothing too ambitions or really thoughtful, but it was something to start with.
I'm starting my Valentine's Day package. So far it has:
- A cheesy card that plays music when you open it (he'll probably hate it)
- Some homemade cookies (heart shaped with sprinkles)
- Some of his favorite candy (Mike n Ikes)
- Bubble Yum bubble gum
He loves crossword puzzles, so I thought about making up some games from puzzlemaker.discoveryeducation.com. You can add in your own words to make fun puzzles and games that are personalized. The crossword I'm working on might be a little hard for him. My clues are kind of tricky (my favorite part of you: eyes). They aren't necessarily things I've mentioned before, but he's smart. I bet he can figure it out! Pin It
