As many of you know, my kids and I are participating in a challenge this summer- A 50 States Challenge- where we are attempting to collect a postcard from each state. We are learning where all the states are and some neat facts about each one too. I have been overwhelmed with how much help we have received with our challenge- many of my bloggy friends and facebook friends are reaching out to friends and family in other states to help with our challenge!! With less than a month an a half left to reach our goal, we are well on our way to achieve it!!
Our tally so far (drum roll please...):
Our map appears to be covered pretty well. I was most concerned about getting many of the eastern states, but a sweet friend in Chicago went on a road trip and sent us 13 postcards from her travels!! Thanks Austin & Ashley!!
It is so very cool to me that we have received 62 postcards from all over this country!!!This would not have been possible without the help of so many of my bloggy & facebook friends that have reached out and sent us postcards. Thank you so much!! Maybe you see yours' in the pile!
The furthest distance a postcard traveled to us: Alaska
And the closest one traveled: My sweet state of Texas
Our sweet Chicago friends also sent us a great puzzle to tackle once our challenge is complete:
But the challenge is not over yet!! I still need your help! We are in need of a postcard from the following 21 states to meet our goal. If you live in one of these states, are traveling to, or know someone who lives there, won't you please send us a card? Also, we are trying to see where we get the most cards from (so far, Alaska is winning- go figure!), most unusual shaped card, etc. so even if we already have a state you are from, we would still like to get a card from you!! Please help us out!
Thanks my friends for all of your help!!
