    We are studying the states and capitals and I thought it would be fun to get some postcards from different states. We live in NH so I can offer ours in return. If enough people want to trade postcards maybe we can make an address list to distribute. LMK what you think. Maybe I should put this on the market board? You can get postcards that represent your state often at the PO or I see them all the time at our Walmart next to the service desk.

    I can send you one from Connecticut if you want, and depending on how long you do this, I can send one from Texas once I get home in mid-March.

    we would like to collect postcards of state capital buildings.. I can send Washington postcards or I might could pick up some postcards from Idaho if I think about it while we're there next week.. or Oregon when we go there in March... unless someone had a specific request, I'd send postcards of Mt. Rainier, since it's something we can view from our house :)

    I happen to have 3 postcards here with the KY Horse Park on them. I'd be happy to send them out, and I can get more :)

    We can do Mississippi.
    I don't know if I can come across one of the capital or not, I'll have to search adn see what I come up with. I know I have one of French Camp (Natchez Trace) and MSU.

    We can send from CO (thought I don't it would be a state capital post card) we dont homeschool though so if there is a hs'er that is from CO that wants to do it, feel free.

    I can't guarantee that ours will be of the capital. We're in So Cal, so we see a lot more Hollywood and beach post cards.

    I'm getting lots of addresses and I'll send out a list soon. I think any postcard with a pic of your state is fine. I'll id the person that specifically wanted a capital card.

    sent mine in.

    I'm the one that was specifically trying to collect postcards of the capitols. If you want to send something else, that's totally fine.. but if you're near a capitol and have that as an option, that's what I'd prefer if possible. I've got a headache - I hope that made sense. So if you're standing there looking at postcards, and there's a postcard of your capitol, pretty please send it to me. If there isn't one, don't worry about it and get whatever you think is a good representation of your state. :)

    I'm not a home schooler, but you know, even we public schoolers ;) like to do educational things outside of what the school does. So, can we participate even though we are not homeschoolers? I would totally understand if the answer were no.

    :nono: Only homeschoolers get to be educational. You leave your schooling to the professionals. :lol:

    I have no idea why it would even be a question of whether or not you can participate. :)

    I would like to participate too. I am in CA though, and already see someone else from CA.
