    Well all you wonderful BYCers who have been SO patient I finally got word. For reasons no one explained to me, the school decided to drag this game out a while - no idea how long.

    But, "today" as in this is the first time she saw them - DD got four post cards and one was "all the way on the other side of the world from our school!!" Picture big blue eyes as wide as the ocean that card crossed.

    She was very excited so THANK YOU!!! I suspect EC had a hand in that one!

    Not sure what the criteria was for sending a card, but I would have sent her one. I guess this was just another topic I missed. I can't keep up with y'all!

    I was expecting she would have a lot more than 4 - did she get mine from Wales?

    Yeah, I am not sure why the school is handling this this way. [​IMG]

    I am going to send a note in to the teacher and simply ask. It seems now like they are parceling them out a few at a time --- perhaps Jessica simply got so many they didn't want the other kids to see that they were all for her! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'll keep you posted!

    That does seem strange. I sent one from Va when you first posted so your daughter should have TONS of them. Maybe the Post Office simply couldn't handle all the BYC mail to her school. [​IMG]

    Perhaps the more exotic cards are making their rounds among the teachers before they hit your daughter's class room.

    And I'm positive that no one else is getting as many cards as your daughter. BYC is a very supportive forum!!

    I was just thinking about the Gingerbreadman the other day.

    What if we all emailed the teacher asking what's up with our cards? [​IMG]
