You may know that Corinne is totally into American History and President stuff. Last fall, for school, I had her write a letter to President George W. Bush. She wrote him a letter telling him about her family, how old she was, etc. And she drew him a picture as well. We mailed it to him hoping for a quick response! That was several months ago now, and I had thoughts about giving up on a reply. I was going to have her write him again, hoping persistence would pay off. But- last Thursday, Corinne went out to check the mail and came running back in with the envelope from George W. Bush, addressed to her.
President Bush thanked her for writing, and thanked her for the picture. He said that he and Mrs. Bush were working on an exhibit to be opening this spring. He also challenged her to do good in school and work hard because the future was in her hands!
Very cool, and made me a proud mom!
Here are a few pics of my 3rd quilt. I named this one "Quadrants" and gave it to one of my high school math teachers who is now a lovely friend and mentor.
