Dear Joseph,
I know it is hard to adjust to a new home. After all, you have moved a long distance and have gone from living in a house to living in an apartment. On the other hand, look at the really neat area you are living in now. You and mom and dad have been to the monuments and Smithsonian already.

I enjoyed our drive out and visiting the monuments when I was there. It brought back a lot of memories of the time I lived in D.C.. For now, I hope you find a really good school with nice kids, just like back in Cincinnati. I know you will. When you do, please write or call me about it.
Right now, the most important thing is that you are back together as a family. I know you missed dad a lot, so you can spend lots of time with him now. Just remember:

Papa loves you (too).

Dear Joseph,
Well, we had quite a time last weekend, didn't we? There was lots of driving and all the moving. Finally, you and dad and mom are together in your new home and settling in. It will take a while for you to get used to living in a new place with new people, but eventually it will be wonderful.

Grandma, Bubee and I will be coming for your birthday soon, and I will be anxious to see how you've set up your room. I hope you will tell me how it has been living in a new place and if you've met other children in your building.

Stay well. See you soon.

Papa love you.
