I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Confirmation letter to my daughterConfirmation letter to my fourth sonConfirmation letter to to my third son
I've asked my children what they remember about the letter they got from me and their dad, and also what they remembered about the letters they received.

  1. 20 years of homeschooling?! Good, good for you! I'm a homeschool graduate beginning my first year of homeschooling my own children. It's a lot different being on the "mom" end of things!
