in the mail

Tessa's letter, which is awaiting sending now:

Dear Malia and Sasha,
I'm glad that your dad is President. What is your new puppy's name? I like horses - do you? I'm happy that you get to live in the White House.
Love,
Tessa Surface
age 6
Seattle, WA, USA

This is the longest letter that Tessa has ever written, but it was important to her.

What I hope that she is remembering is "Politics are important. Make sure your voice is heard. You are a part of the process. What happens in DC impacts us. Little girls are a part of the process, too."

She drew a picture of our family, too.

And now it's headed to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Oh, that is just precious! I wrote to one of the presidents once - I think it was Carter - we were going on a school trip and I wanted to meet him. I got back a letter saying he couldn't make it, but hoped I enjoyed my trip to the White House. It was very special to get that.
