A Letter to the President

Today has been sort of a laid-back school day (since it's a holiday and all!). We enjoyed reading this book together: Then The Princess wrote a letter to President Obama and drew him a picture:

I can remember writing to President Reagan (my favorite president!) with my class in 4th grade. It was so exciting to receive a letter back from him! I hope that President Obama will respond to The Princess' letter, although I know he has a lot on his plate. It was good letter-writing practice for her anyway--that is a talent I want to encourage her to develop.
I'm curious, have you ever written a letter to one of our past presidents? Do you encourage your children to do that?

Please let us know if she does get a letter. I hope she does. I can imagine her excitement.

Cute drawing too.

How neat! I sure hope she gets a letter.

I wrote to President Reagan, too. :D

Great ideas and activities! Looks like fun!

I can't remember ever doing this. It would've been Reagan for me, but I don't think we wrote him. Sad, I feel like I missed something. =)
