Basic Information:

Tell me about your home. Who do you live with and what do you do together?

Having some place to go is Home; having someone to love is Family. Having both is a Blessing

What’s your favorite food / activity / book / song / movie? Why?

When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I’m feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things and then I don’t feel so bad. (Sound of Music)

What habits and skills are you developing? What do you do for fun?

Your future is defined by your daily habits. (John Maxwell)

Friends & Family

What is one of the best times you have had with your family/friends recently? 

I’ve learned that family and friends are what make us who we are today and without them we would never be complete.

Who is the most influential person in your life? Why?

Who is your best friend? What is he/she like?

A friend is someone who helps you up when you’re down, and if they can’t, they lay down beside you and listen. (Winnie-the-Pooh)

Me On the Inside

Do you believe in God? Why? How does your faith influence what you do?

If I could sit on the porch with God, the first thing I would do is thank him for you.

How would you describe yourself? Are you Happy? Why?

Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it. (The Incredibles)

What are your core values? How are they affecting your life?

Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you. (Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You!)

Hopes & Dreams

What advice would you like to give me so I could be more helpful to you?

She generally gave herself very good advice, though she seldom followed it. (Alice in Wonderland)

What is the biggest problem in the world today? What do you think the solution is?

I can’t fix the world’s problems. But I’ll do what I can to make a difference where I can.

Where do you think you’ll be 3 years from now? Ten years? What will you be doing? What are you doing now to get there?

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. (Eleanor Roosevelt)

Once your postcards have been written, it’s time for Book Bonding/Binding Day. Here’s how:

Making a Hardcover Album

Making a Softcover Album

You could also take your postcard stories to the local printshop to bind the book.

For a hardcover book, you could even take pictures of each page and upload them to a company such as Shutterfly for making into a book with little work on your part.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this adventure with Koala Pete™. Now’s a good time to think about another series of postcard stories for another loved one in your life.
