Got Mail?

Did you say that you like to receive good old fashioned snail mail?

If so, I was wondering if you might be up for receiving some from me~
(Well, Jonathan, really)?
We need a little help with a school project for Jonathan's 5th grade class!
His class is doing an experiment to see how many postcards they can collect from
different places around the globe.
The students are sending out passports that will travel from one person to
another. The recipient writes a little bit about their place in the world on the
passport...then sends the passport on to another person. Each person also sends
a postcard to Jonathan's class, so that the students can see where the passports
have been traveling.

The passport will travel until early December, at which time it should be sent
back to the school.

Since most of our family lives in the same state, I thought it would be fun to
involve some of my bloggy friends from across the US, Canada, and Europe.
If you would like to be added to a list of travel destinations for this project,
Jonathan and I would really appreciate it.
When Emily's class did this a few years ago..her passport never came back. She
was sad. I'm hoping that by asking first....the recipients won't mind sending
it on to the next person....and it will be returned in the end!

If you'd like to help, send me an email ( with your contact
I'll put the addresses in the passport...and send it on it's way!

I hope you all had a great weekend!
Enjoy this week!
