So back in November Zach heard on NPR that then candidate Barack Obama's grandma died in Hawaii. That really hit home for Z because his grandparents live in Hawaii, and he loves them dearly. So he decided to write Senator Obama a condolence letter. Since it was just a few days before the election, we sent it off to his senate office address.
I sorted the mail on Saturday and almost fell over when I saw a letter to Zach from The White House!
"Zach, you have a letter here."
"Who's it from?"
"Oh, I KNEW he wouldn't forget me, I knew it!"
Sure it was a form letter, but it made this little boy's day.
He wants to write back again. I think he thinks they're penpals now.
