Send Us a Postcard!

This is a fun little application I found online. It shows countries I've visited personally.

It made me think of my friend Beth. Her son just started Kindergarten. His class is asking people who live in the US to send postcards so the kids can learn about geography. I think it's such a great idea that I forwarded the email to about 60 people I know, and gave them our home address too. I'd love for y'all to send postcards to him, or to Katie as well. Email me if you are interested and I'll send you the necessary information. Then I'd love to make a map like the one above, showing Katie where she received postcards from.

And, by the way, I would love to have postcards for Katie from ANYWHERE, not just in the States. So for those of you who are foreigners (you know how much I love you anyway!), please send us a postcard too. Pretty please?!

Just for fun, here's a map of the states I've visited (although I don't think it's entirely accurate, since we drove to Canada when I was younger and HAD to have crossed through some of those northern states):

Oooo... this is addicting. I know lots of you who will enjoy it! (It's right up your alley, Pillownaut! Now I just need some photos of myself at each state's sign, like you!)

Oooo I love the idea of a picture at each state sign. Buuuuut never done that one. Bummer. Definitely a cool app. Our kindergarten is lucky in that the teacher's daughter works for a travel company that does all sorts of cool rich people excursions, so we get the post cards and the scoop from her at each of her stops. I can't wait to see it!
