Got mail?

We receive mail through the US diplomatic pouch a couple of times a week. It's truly one of the greatest advantages to being and 'official' American here. Items purchased on the internet and packages sent by friends and family can be sent to our US address with ease. Then, the government ships them to us in Dhaka. It usually takes 2 weeks for mail to reach us.

Mail days are exciting, especially if we get something 'good', i.e. not bills or junk mail. Frequently, the mail delivery includes packages and packages usually contain something for Odin and Lily. Every night when Eric returns from work Odin asks with genuine interest, 'Mail? Got mail, Dada?'

Here's the aftermath from this week's package delivery...

Well, now I have to go out and send those kids some mail! BTW, Julia has that same pink mushroom dress. I'm going to take a guess and say that package was from Mom.
