Post Box , A Daddy & Emily project.

Emily has been really interested in other people’s jobs recently, & after asking police men , lollipop ladies & shopkeepers about their daily tasks she decided that she wanted to be a postman when she grows up.
Of course a postman needs a postbox, so yesterday, when we were late for church & everyone was inside already,doors closed & all, Daddy & Emily decided to go home & use the time to make just that for her.
