Transcript of the letter that Charlotte dictated this morning and asked me to write in my fanciest cursive:

Dear Senorita,

I am going to China. Then I will go to Mexico. I will bring you a big ruby, as big as your foot. I will also send a letter to your daughter saying “I love you so much.” I will also take many pictures of everyone in Mexico, in black and white.



Now…I have a couple questions:

Who is this Marco and where’s that ruby?


UPDATE:  Apparently our unit studies on world explorers has piqued her imagination.  Marco is none other than Marco Polo!
