I have to finish shopping today. Mine will go out by Tuesday. I'll post when I send. I need to go to a craft store and the closest one is 35 miles away. With school and dance, I couldn't get there during the week.

I so totally understand. I live 30 minutes away from the nearest "town" to buy those kind of things too. I also 20 minutes away from the nearest Walmart (opposite direction) so even those trips take forever.
I'm sure your exchange buddy will understand too.

I am running a little behind today. DS came down with quite a case of Poison Ivy and has been ithing up a storm. :guilty:

The good news is that he is NOT contagious and so the baby will not get it, nor will DH and I, HOWEVER as I am sure you know it is worse when your kids are sick than when you are. Poor kid is sooooo uncomfortable.

So as a result, I have not sent out our exchange package yet. It will go out Tuesday. Sorry for the delay, but it WILL be in tomorrow's mail.

At least it doesn't have too far to travel. :thumbsup2

Our package went out this morning Priority Mail with DC. Should be there Thursday according to the Post Office.

Also, just got a package for DS from FedEx today. It is hard to read the label, but I think it says Buffy S. from TX? Not sure. In any case, DS is at school right now and has activities this afternoon so I will post more about it after he gets home. So thanks in advance and more thanks a little later from DS.

I cant say why these are taking so long.I have receipts for them.I feel bad about this :sad2: .I dont know if they were held up at coustoms or not.I rechecked with the postoffice and was told that it could take anywhere from 7-10 business days for them to arrive.If this is true then by Tuesday the lastest they should be there.The last exchange I did and sent to the states the package arrived in good time.If the packages are not in by this time then I will be more then willing to send out new ones.Im sorry to the children who are still waiting and I think Ive spoken to each of the mom's letting them know that they were sent and know one was forgotten.
I hope you all can understand. :worried:

Hi All...we just got back from WDW at 2:00 am. So, of course the first thing I do is hop on the boards. I haven't read through this thread yet, but I just wanted to post that as of yesterday (9/30) Caroline hasn't received her exchange. I'm assuming it's just coming from a distance and will be here soonb, though.

Cora doesn't even know that one is on the way for her, so don't be concerned with sending another for her, she can wait for the original. I don't tell my kids when I get them in on the exchanges so they are always surprised when they get a package, no sad faces the days they don't. I'm sure the packages will arrive soon.

You know, I just thought of something that happened with me once. I had a bunch of auctions ending at once and I packaged everything up and put it in the trunk of my car to mail the next day or something. I had an incredibly busy week and never got to the PO, but because it was on my To Do list I literally thought I had gone. It wasn't until a week or so later that I opened my trunk and was mortified to find the back of auctions in there. No, I suppose I'm possibly flightier than the average bear...but is it at all possible they're in the trunk of your car (or somewhere similar???). Just a thought!!!

Either way, we're very very patient and I hope you're not sweating about it at all. No worries! :cloud9:

Cora will not be going to school tomorrow but she'll be busy working on her activities that Brandon sent her.

Caroline was just THRILLED with her exchange, which arrived today. She was SO impressed that it came from Canada. There was even a postcard with a Mountie on it with a lovely note. She was IMPRESSED. Her exchange contained:

some Halloween erasers
pricess stickers
a paint your own wooden decoration kit
craft foam and foam beach shapes
a book of games like dot to dot and such
a "how to write in cursive" book
a friendship bracelet kit

I can't even tell you how PERFECT each and every item is for her. She is a crafty kind of girl so she has already begun making some new creations.

I know we're technically closed on this exchange. But, I just had to post that DreamsComingTrue went way above and beyond by sending out a second box of activities for Caroline that arrived today. Apparently it was sent before the first box finally arrived. I haven't gone through it because Caroline is at her dad's today. But, I'm sure she'll be SO excited to have a totally unexpected surprise when she comes home. Thank you SO MUCH!! :cool1: You really DID NOT have to do that!!! :grouphug:
