Dear Joe,
I had a great visit and enjoyed being with you. I see that you have grown some and are smarter than ever. I will send some pictures when they are ready.

Always remember,
Papa loves you.

Hey Joe,
here's a picture of the boat Papa is building in the garage.
Dear Joe,
Nice picture of you on facebook today.
I am really looking forward to seeing you soon in DC. Yes, I will bring grandma if I can fit her into my suitcase.
Papa love you.

Hey, Joe,
Papa missses you and thinks about you all the time. How are you doing?
I am trying to build a kayak in the garage and it is hard. Things aren't going real well right now, but a friend of mine is going to come over and help me.

I see you got a new ball and wonder if you have practiced playing with it. Is it for soccer?

Your birrthday is getting close so grandma and I will be coming to see you this month. Don't sit by the window looking for us because it isn't for a few weeks.

I hope you will e  mail me and send some pictures of you doing stuff. Let me know how school is going and how you feel about going to a new school.

Remember, Papa loves you.

Dear Joe,
  It's Papa in Milwaukee, and I've missed you and been wondering what you have been doing.

  I have been teaching at two schools and doing some kayaking. This weekend I will be in Madison for a boat show called Canoecopia.
  Winter here in Milwaukee has been mild, but we are expecting a lot of snow later today. That will make it hard to drive.
  I am sending you some pictures. If you like any of them, Mom can save them on the computer.
Here is Papa on Lake Michigan last week.
Here's a picture of a deer that was right outside our window the other day. I hope we see some animals when you come to visit Grandma and me.

Heres' a picture of you and Dad that I keep on my computer.
Start making a list of what you want to do when you come to visit. Send me the list every day so I can see what I can arrange. In fact, let's write every day so I know what you are doing at home and in school. Okay? Let's do it by e-mail....and always remember,
Papa loves you.

Dear Joseph,
Winter is colder here than where you are living. It often gets down to and below freezing, so sometimes we take our kayaks to the swimming pool for practice. When you are here we will see what we can do about getting you into a kayak.

Adena was here for a few days. We are still recovering.
This deer was outside our family room the other day. Neat, huh?

Remember always,
Papa loves you.
