    Just to make sure we are all on the same page. . . Get some postcards that represent your state - state monuments, state parks, features unique to your state, etc. I got mine at Walmart and the Post Office. One person would love a picture of your state capitol building but if you don't have one that's ok. Send them out as soon as you are able. This is completely on the honor system. I am not following up to make sure you do it. If you can't do it it would be nice to send an pm to the people to say you can't, I gave you everyone's username. I am having my third grader write a short note on mine. FYI I asked my post office about sending one to Canada and she told me it would take 72 cents. The postcard stamps were 26 cents each. We are going to put a little sticker dot on the states we get postcards from and hang them from our bulletin board. Thanks for everyone that participated.

    Just to let you know, if anyone is still mailing them out.... postcards went up to 27 cents. I had the mail lady honking at me this afternoon because I didn't put enough money in the mailbox.

    ooh, good to know. Mine can't go out until I can get to the post office and buy stamps, and that can't happen as long as my kids have high fevers - so bear with me please, they will be coming. Since I wasn't sure what Val would send (we're about half an hour apart, so same general area), we chose a post card of Mt. St. Helens, in the southern part of our state.

    Mine will be sent out on Friday ~ DD has a music performance tomorrow and I've got to get them packed up for Spring Break with the ILs. Everyone's getting a different representation of KY... among them I have Daniel Boone, Abe Lincoln's boyhood home, Mary Todd Lincoln's childhood home, the Red River Gorge (where DH and I will be camping next week :D ), Cumberland State Park, and two of the state capitol grounds. I had fun picking them all out!

    Thank you mama :D

    I sent ours out a couple of days ago, so Texas is on its way!
    I didn't see the note about Canada though, until just now. :p It may not make it up there.
    I had a devil of a time finding postcards this time! I have done state swaps before and have never had an issue. I couldn't find them ANYWHERE.
    My kids are loving the postcards. We are hanging them up around our U.S. map with a piece of yarn going to the state. Joseph likes being in charge of that.
