Flat Stanley Came to Visit Us

In the book, Flat Stanley, by Jeff Brown, Stanley goes on vacation by being mailed like a letter to his friend in California. Mike's niece mailed a Flat Stanley to us so he got to do things with us yesterday.

Laura got a birthday box and birthday card in the mail yesterday so he got to "help" her open that.

Here he is "farming" with Tracy on Facebook.


Here he is helping Melissa make cookies for her friends.


We took him to our small town where he went ice skating with the kids.



After supper he got to go to our other small town and go to Awana with us. I didn't quite get him into the light, but he's there by the sign. :)

(Ugh...red eye. I'll have to fix that later.)

Here he is asleep with Laura after a busy day.




I sure hope he enjoyed his stay! :)

...now to mail him back...

we got a Flat Stanley a few years ago from a cousin's kid too. we had a lot of fun taking it around and taking pics of it. then we sent it back to the kid's school so they could track on a map where all the Stanleys had been. fun stuff!

Yes, that's what the letter said they were doing too. I got the book on cassette from the library but fell asleep listening to it yesterday afternoon. There were four stories on it, and my boys (13 and 10) sat listening the whole time!
