The All-American Postcard Swap!

I mentioned earlier that I will do going a geography notebook this year with Macy and to make it more fun, I have decided to host a postcard swap!

How it works: A family from each state will swap postcards over the next 50 weeks. Each state will be assigned a certain week to mail out their 49 postcards. We will go in alphabetical order. In 50 weeks, your family will have received 49 postcards from all over the United States! Please include one or a few interesting facts about your state on the postcard.

To Join: Please check the list below to see if your state is available and if it is, please leave your state and email address in the comment section and I will email you to get your name and address.

Other Info: Please do not sign up if you do not intend to send the postcards out. Also, please keep in mind that you will have to purchase (or make) 49 postcards and postcard stamps. But in return you will get a postcard a week for 50 weeks! You don't necessarily have to live in the state you are sending out a postcard for, as long as you are able to get 49 postcards from that state and can include something interesting about it on the postcards.

we could do WV or Washingon, D.C. if you wanted to add it. I realize that would cause everyone to have to send 50 and you're already into planning. Let me know which one you want us to do.
