We are enjoying the last bits of summer here in central California, where I live with my family. But we are quickly moving into the fall season as kids head back to school, thoughts of homemade soups and bread fill my head, and I start thinking about pulling out the warmer clothes as we head into cooler weather.
But I have to wonder what the weather is like for my Compassion kids this time of year. Do they experience a change of seasons as we do?
And do they start back to school in September as they do here in the United States, or does their school year start during a different month?
This month in our Second Friday Letter Writing Club, we are going to focus on two themes: “Back to School” and “Fall”!
In your letter to your sponsored child this month, you could ask some of the questions above. Or how about a couple of these:
- What grade are you in and what is your favorite subject in school?
- What do you like most about school?
- What is the weather like where you live?
- Does the weather change a lot throughout the year?
- What kind of trees grow where you live?
Do you need some ideas on how to pray for your sponsored child as he or she attends school? How about this pin that uses different colors as prayer prompts:
Do your kids like to doodle? Take them for a walk to collect some small fall leaves, then use the pins below as inspiration for making their own leaf doodles to mail to your sponsored child:
Have you found some great “Back to School” or “Fall” pins? Be sure to share them with us on Second Friday Letter Writing Club on Pinterest.
