Welcome, Mr. President!


Last night we wrote letters to our new president for Family Home Evening. I downloaded the cards from 2cleverblog.com's eavesdropper email (sign up to receive it on their blog). Thanks, Kristi & Stacy for the great idea and darling graphic! (They have cards you can send to the outgoing president and the new president, but I rightly guessed that it would be enough of a struggle for my family to do just one!)

It was so fun to see what the kids wrote in their cards -- I scanned them to have as keepsakes. A wonderful new tradition!

**Edited to add:

Lucas's letter and a selection of Max's. (Eva's was a drawing of Randall from Monsters, Inc. She signed the back and scribbled all over the White House...)

Very cute idea from Kristi and Stacy, and great FHE idea as well.

I'm curious to see what the kids had to say...especially Eva! :)
That's really a great idea...

i love these cards. eleanor designed and wrote her own card. i did not scan it but i did take a pic. it was priceless.

Susan said...

WAY cute cards! But, I'm awfully curious about the letters written. Give us an example!

Do you think someone really reads these? Hopefully, Mrs. Obama.

Alison said...

I love this!!! I'm obsessed.

Amy said...

Oh my goodness, Michelle. I love this card. Thanks for passing along such a great idea.

Denise said...

So cute! I would also love to see what the kids wrote. I thought that was a great idea from the 2Clever gals.

wende said...

i loved this idea! i wrote one myself but didn't think to print some for the kids - what a great idea! :) you're so smart to scan before you send, they will love having those one day.

I love the picture of the house and the font and of course the cute pink curtains! Your kids are great, and I love it that they can defend their ideals and ideas, especially for their age.

Natasha said...

I saw this on 2clever but haven't done it yet. YOU are clever to think to scan their words!

Natasha said...

p.s. how kind of Lucas to make an "exception" this once, for the president and all . . .

LOVE IT!

Christina said...

hooray boys! way to represent. I love to here such articulate views.

Becky Heard said...

Love it!

Susan said...

Those letters are keepers for sure, and now they will be forever recorded!

Good idea!

I'd love to sit in on one of Max's deates! Reminds me of my cheerleading days and our religious discussions, I was the zelot!

I love these letters - I have to admit one of my favorite parts was Lucas mentioning that the election was not real...

TX Girl said...

I LOVE Max's note. Especially the word Republicaness. Fantastic.

oh michelle, so fun to hear your kind words but even more so to see that people used the cards.
Dang if my creativity can be used for something good to get kids to write to a president than I keep my clever brain (even though it often gets me in trouble)
Can you believe I have not even had my kids do this yet???
Thanks friend.

great idea Michelle. I think Bella would be way into this seeing how she actually got to vote for him. Love to read what your kids wrote, especially max who seems to think like an adult. Tell max I like his handwritting.

Amie said...

Impressive letters... and a good idea.

Hannah said...

I am loving all that Max had to say. What a fantastic idea! I was just thinking that I wish Mya was old enough to send something, but she could draw something and I can send my thoughts. You are raising such well rounded, informed kids. They are so lucky!

marc said...

I'm so glad you scanned those.
