Gracie and I wanted to thank those of you again who have sent us postcards from all around the US. This afternoon we received 2 more from Aunt Heather, and I found the perfect sized stickers to help illustrate to Gracie where everyone had been.
We have been collecting postcards for several months now, and it has been a very exciting and a wonderful educational experience. Each time we receive a postcard I read it to Gracie (usually several times because she says "read again mommy!") and I tell her who it is from. Usually I find a picture of that person from my massive photo collection and point our "sender" out to her. Then we read and look at the pictures of the other postcards that are already in our box.
I have a Dora map that is in the box and I point to the state where the postcard came from. Today, I found these little "Blues Clues" pawprint stickers and they were just small enough to use. So, as you can see from the picture above we have quite a few states covered. Actually we have 9 different states and 10 postcards total.
We hope to continue our postcard project and hope that any of you who travel this holiday season or can find a postcard in your hometown would kindly send us a note! We really enjoy traveling vicariously through you!
PS: If you need our address, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I don't want to give our address out online.
**Gracie puts stickers on the states where we have received postcards, some southern states we are still missing include: North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Georgia, Louisiana, and more.
