Postcard Swap: Alabama 1of 50

The swap has begun!!
The back of the postcard reads:
"Hello from Alabama!
Population is 4.7 million (2009 estimate)
Capital is Montgomery but Birmingham is the largest city. Birmingham is also home to the world's largest cast iron statue, Vulcan, at 56 feet tall and 120,000 pounds.
Famous people include Rosa Parks, Harper Lee, Helen Keller,, W.C. Handy and George Washington Carver."

I have not yet decided on what kind of project I will make with the postcards after we get them. I want to find a large map and a cork board to put them all up on and have strings running from the state on the map to the post card. I think it will be a cool way to show Princess where the postcards came from!
We got this first post card last week! Each week another state (family) is scheduled to send out their postcards so we should get another one soon and will continue to get one a week from now until April 2011. We will send out ours the week of July 5th.
