Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

Mail Time

"Here's the mail,
it never fails,
it makes me want to wag my tail,
when it comes I want to wail, MAIL!"
We love...
going to the mailbox. It is fun to reach in and pull out a bundle of stacked papers to see what there is to read. Sports Illustrated and American Girl Doll magazines are big hits around here......but the biggest excitement comes when there is a letter!! Email is a great way to stay connected but there is nothing like getting a handwritten note all wrapped up in an envelope with your own name on it.
" We just got a letter....
We just got a letter....

We just got a letter....

I wonder who it's from?!"

And letters from friends and family are the very best kind to get!
Thank you and keep sending them!!


  1. Reading your blog reminded me of our little Blues Clues player - miss hearing that song played at our house. Alea - I will write you a letter too - soon!!!!

  2. We love those envelopes too!! Gum even makes it through those envelope sorters, it just gets a LITTLE mushed.
