The mailroom is now closed. Our last batch of messages was delivered later than normal today for other reasons, but a nice side effect was more time for last minute messages, but as some groups will be leaving very early tomorrow, there won’t be any more deliveries.
All in all, we had over three hundred and fifty messages sent during the week. The kids were genuinely surprised at how many e-mails they would find each day as well as who was sending them e-mails. I regularly heard comments like “Someone from my church e-mailed me; it isn’t just my mom!” or “I didn’t think my grandparent even knew about the web site!”
Thanks for your words of encouragement, tidbits of wisdom, and news from the homefront.
