Chatterbox: Down to Earth

I wasn't sure

I wasn't sure where to put this one either...  It's sort about the world around you, so I guess it works here.  Does anybuggy have any pen pals?  I write to a girl named Viviana who lives in Columbia.  It takes a really long time to write to her, not only because she lives really far away, but also, our letters need to be translated through a translator.  She's really fun!  She has a parakeet just like me, and his name is Oliver.  She has the same favorite animals as me and everything!  It's amazing how many similarities we have!

YAY!:) Someone else has a pen pal!!!!:) I've been writing to a 12-year-old girl named Hannah for a couple months, and I LOVE it!!!!:):):) She lives in UK, so I know what you mean about letters taking a little while to arrive, but we don't need a translator. Also, we e-mail each other about once every one or two days. She has a cute kitten with a black nose just like my kitten Suki, and we love to send pictures of each other and things around us. We love to talk about EVERYTHING!!!!!:):):) Pen pals are AWESOME!!!!:):):)

Does she like using smiley faces, too? :):):)  You should tell her about the Chatterbox!  :):):):)  I don't know if Viviana has a computer, so of course I can't e-mail her.  We like to talk about what the weather is like; since she lives in the southern hemisphere, it's cold in the summer and hot in the winter!  It's really funny!

Yes, she really does like to use smiley faces too!:):):) I haven't told her about Cricket Chatterbox yet, but now that you've mentioned it, I think that I will. It would be so cool!:):):) Thanks!:):):)

I have an e-pal who used to be a good friend who moved to California. I've always wanted a pen-pal, like an actual pen-pal I've never met before. Paige, how did you start writing to your pen-pal? Does anybody out there know a safe pen-pal program?
