little stamp collector

 We have a little stamp collector in our house now.

My middle son has just started showing an interest in stamps.  He is learning a little history and geography along the way. I really don't know the first thing about stamp collecting, so this should be a fun learning experience for the both of us!

When we visited my oldest son last month, we went to a cool flea market where he purchased a bag full of old stamps for my little stamp collector. There were stamps from all around the world. My middle son was so happy.
His collection of eight stamps really grew!

Thankfully, my father-in-law collects stamps and he was gracious enough to come over and look at his little collection. He even gave him a tin box full of stamps! 
My son was thrilled to have someone else show an interest in his growing collection and to have a jump start on this new project! 

He has now purchased a book for his stamps and is in the process of organizing them.

Check out this great link if your kids are interested in collecting stamps too!
