I hope you are all having a happy summer! I am loving my cookbook and so many wonderful gifts from all of you! I was overwhelmed by all of the kind words and special gifts. Thank you all so much for thinking of me and my family during this special summer for us!
On another note, had to write and share some exciting news. The week after school got out I found a large envelop in my mailbox from the White House! It was addressed to Jia Slovic. After all of the letters we wrote this year to President Obama, various high schools, the Washington Redskins, and many others I had been disappointed that not one of you received a letter back, until this arrived for Jia.
I excitedly called Jia and her mom and asked if they could come down to school to open it. Here is what she received:
Congratulations Jia, and all of the children who wrote letters, on making your voices heard! I hope that all of you will keep writing letters when you feel strongly about issues that arise throughout your life. My Grandpa taught me that if you don't at least try and send a letter you'll never know if you can make impact or not!
Missing you all!
