I still get bureau cards, about twice a year I guess. Which means I pay the bureau to send them to me, so I already have cost involved, just to receive them. Most these days are from JA's it seems, and I respond 100% via the bureau. I get very few direct QSL's, but I respond 100% to them as well. There was a time that I was getting quite annoyed at the direct ones that had no return envelope, but that hasn't happened in over a year now. Suggestion - rather than seeing it as a burden, make it something fun - especially if your daughter gets a kick out of them. Go thru where they came from on a map, you can discuss the cultures, languages, clothing, whatever is of interest!
