So, my kids know a lot about this state.....
but not so much about the other 49 (what??!! there's other states out there besides Texas??)
And that, my dear friends, is where you can help us out! This summer, my kids and I are taking on the 50 States Challenge!! In an effort to learn all our states, we are attempting to collect as many post cards from the states as we can. We have a map laid out and as each post card comes in, we will find it on the map and "flag" it as identified. Our goals are to...
- Collect at least ONE card from each state.
- See what state we get the most cards from.
- Identify a favorite state from the post cards we receive and learn a few facts about it.
So, can you please help us? Would you mind sending our family a postcard from the state you live in? We still want to collect Texas ones too, my Lone Star friends!! Maybe, if you are so inclined, you could pick up a postcard from another state you are visiting on vacation? We would greatly appreciate it! Just shoot me a quick email and I will send you our address.
We love a challenge, and this is one we want to complete before heading back to school in September. We will blog about it during the summer and let you know our status!!
And honestly, as much as I don't want them to ever move away, my kids need to know there is much more than just Texas out there!!
