So, I was thinking that DS (7) might enjoy writing a few sentences on postcards, and sending them to people.  Then he could get postcards back from all different states.  We've got tons of family in AZ and MI, but that's about it.  

Are there any penpal sites that would be helpful?  Or any mamas here want to try it out?

Awesome!  I found this site: http://www.studentsoftheworld.info/penpals/penpal_ads.php

but it's email based penpal stuff.  DS created a little 'profile' there, and emailed 2 kids his age, but I think it's so much more exciting to get actual mail...lol.

Yes, ds would like to do this as well!  Would your ds like to write the first letter/card/whatever or would you like my ds (also 7) to do so?

I love the idea of this but, alas, Ds is only 2! If you just want a postcard from a new area, though, I can send you one from Washington

We can write first!  We just went to the zoo on Sunday, and got a few more postcards.  I'll message you our address.
