Postcards from Hawaii

On one of my many trips to Wal-mart, I bought a class set of postcards. They are only $.18 - a bargin in my opinion. I am going to send them to last year's kiddos (shhhh, Jen don't tell the boys). My husband made the comment that the kids are going to love getting mail. Sometimes, that man is so smart. I remembered how much I loved getting letters and postcards from my grandma. I think the art of letter writing is gone.

So I am heading back to Wal-mart for more postcards and keychains. During, the year when one of my kiddos has been doing a great job then I will mail them a postcard with a happy note from this beautiful place. It also will give me an excuse to get postcards from Colorado when we go in November. It might be cool to find different postcards from the state you live in, landmark postcards. think my kiddos will be excited about. What do you think?

  6. Oh my goodness! A secret!! Don't worry, I won't tell. I think they are going to be so happy to receive an actual mail from someone. And it's from you! From Hawaii!! This is such an awesome idea! I think you spending all that time in paradise really gets your creativity going. And I'm so thankful that you never stop being a teacher, even on your time off!!
