We are in News Papers Again!

I received a phone call from the wonderful Mrs. Button today. :-) I couldn't hear very well, because she called my cell phone and the reception wasn't as clear, but I think she is behind all this. :-) She was very excited to ask me if I read the papers today. I never read papers! :-), but as soon as she told me about the yellow "Buttom Line" articles, I ran to a store and got not one, but several of them :-) Someone, and I think it was the Buttons ;-) put an article in about Petr's Postcards. I could not believe it! I just posted Hawaii on the blog and it's already in papers! :-) I really want to thank everyone for supporting my project. I knew I would get a bit of cards for Petr, but it NEVER crossed my mind, that I would really finish it! I have been asking people to send cards about a year ago, and we are only 8 states away from finishing. I am sooo happy, but on the other hand.... kinda sad.... what will I do next!? :-) I am sure I will find something else... :-) to do... So, again, thank you sooooo much to everyone who is not only part of this project but also read this BLOG, because I feel sometimes like I am just reading and writing to myself. :-) THANKS SOOOO MUCH EVERYONE! Especially the wonderful Mr. and Mrs. Buttons! :-) I think it's time for another quick photo shoot with me ;-) Don't worry, I will swing by so that you don't have to! :-)

I am so excited! We finally got HAWAII! Petr said he was very surprised. He tried to find a shorter way to Hawaii from Czech and he said it would probably be shorter going over China :-) Smart young man! :-) Well, this card came from my wonderful friends from Arizona, while being on vacation in KAUAI. Not sure if I spelled it right :-) Augie and Peggy got on the MSN and asked if I have Hawaii yet. Since I hadn't, they promised to send one, and YES! They sent it! Thank you so much guys! I hope you don't mind me stealing this photo from your facebook. :-) I just couldn't resist. Soooooooooooooooo adoooorable! Miss you guys.... Thanks TONS for the card! Another one down!

I couldn't help it not to post the postcard. Orange color and sunsets are my Favorite photo subjects. Love it!

This is a photo of the Fernandez family:

... and since i just received this photo, I thought it would be nice to share it with you. This is Petr coloring his HAWAII addition on his MAP. How cute! :-) Coloring at 13! ;-) I color ones in a while :-)))

MINNESOTA and DELAWARE joined our club!

Another card just arrived, from Kerry a Mike Hogy, from MINNESOTA. I just received their photo and I can't wait to share it with you. Thank you guys! It is fantastic to be able to fill out another white spot in our MAP! :-)

... and this is a photo of Michael McCarthy, his wife Amy and children Aidan and Lauren. Michael is a teacher in my son's school and Michael was so excited to help us! :-) I know there are other cards coming thanks to him and his family, so I will definitely post their photo again :-) THANKS Michael and Amy! You are the best! :-)

DELAWARE is a tiny state, but we still found someone to join our Postcard club! :-) The card came from the Doran family and we would love to send them a note back, but the address got stamped over by the postal services. So, if you can email us the address, Petr would love to email back!

Thank you so much guys! Petr is taking lots of extra English classes hoping he will thank everyone personally one day! :-)

KENTUCKY is covered!

We received not one but TWO Kentucky cards at ones! It is fantastic. They came from Annetta King a Delena McGuire. Thank you so much for joining our project ladies! Petr was so excited! You broke the postcard silence after a while!
This is a photo of Delena and her brother, who is a Marine stationed in California. Delena is also a postcard collector and she told us she is very excited seeing someone so young to find a positive outlet :-) (you have no idea what this means for Petr). Thank you so much for sharing your photo! :-) We love knowing all the wonderful people who are part of this project!
