I have been asked about care packages and thought I would point out the handy-dandy list on the sidebar. These are things that are either not available here or are too expensive for us to buy. So, if you wish to send us a care package, you might want to throw in a couple of our wishes. Nothing is too earth shattering or of upmost importance (except index cards- those have become a desperate need), but everything on the list would be pretty nice to have.
One thing to consider is that our things are showing wear far more quickly here than at home. Many of our socks have been shredded in the wash. Our smartwool socks are holding up well with the added benefit of drying in just a couple of hours. We may be adding to our list of needs as time goes by. Just check it before mailing a package to see what items might have rotated off or been added.
Also, we have been told that packages that weight less than 2 Kilos are less likely to be opened and that care packages mailed in padded envelopes are rarely inspected. Just something to consider.
All items should have the tags removed and should look used if at all possible.
Please expect packages to take a while to arrive. It has been known to take a couple of months for care packages to arrive. If you want to get a package here by Esther's birthday, it should probably be send ASAP. (She would love crayons) (and a bike, but I don't suggest you send one!)
