Ryan has really been enjoying 1st grade social studies class. Back in March / April they started learning about the White House and the Presidents of past and present. When his teacher said the White House sometimes responds to letters that are mailed, he came home and immediately wrote a letter saying hello to the current President.
Well just a few weeks ago my son got an “official” response from the White House with photos, a letter, and some other items as well. It absolutely made his day, and weeks later, the package still sits proudly on his desk.
He knows nothing about politics or corruption, and does not yet fully understand the workings of our government. So ALL politics aside, he is embracing this moment as a day when the President of the United States took the time to say hello…to him.
It is a milestone moment that will likely fade away over time. And that is why I have added it to his mini-Footprint. So that one day he can look back on this experience and remember the feeling of pride he had so long ago.Click Here to Download Attached File.
