Many Thanks 

Last month, my son had a school project called “From Here to There”. As a parent, you want to see your childeren succeed. So I came to you guys, my readers, to help out. And help out you did. The support for this project was enormous. He brought them home yesterday to my enjoyment. Twenty-nine postcards were received as of yesterday. From those twenty-nine, nine different countries were represented. We had fun looking through them all and seeing all of your generous work. So to sum it all up…..THANK YOU! I really do appreciate the effort that you put in to make my sons project so much fun.

I was asked the question “who was the farthest”? I thought it would be neat to actually look up who that might be so I did just that. I have listed states and countries with the distance traveled to Morgan Township Elementary School. Thank you again!

  1. That’s a nice collection of postcards. A project made possible, or at least easy and timely, by the Internet age. The postcards from Maine and Salzburg are especially lovely.

  2. I love that this was a snail mail project (with a little help from the Interwebz). Of course, as someone who builds things IRL, you probably get how cool/fun it is to do things without just typing. (Not that typing isn’t fun, too!!!) Thx for sharing!
