Flat Stanley Goes to DC

 

We were thrilled to learn that my dad took my son, Jorli’s, Flat Stanley on a trip to Washington DC. My dad even went out of his way to take Flat Stanley downtown to see the White House and other Great historical site.

He sent back the plane ticket, a brochure, Flat Stanley with a DC stamp on his shirt and lots of pictures of their adventure.

My dad was very creative and we were all thrilled with his Flat Stanley. We will never forget it 🙂

I met Flat Stanley when I was in first grade. Instead of sending him away to a friend, he got to spend Spring Break with me and my family. When I met him we spent all 9 days of spring break together.

Flat Stanley visits VA, from PA

My friend Chrissy, who lives in PA asked me to participate in her son’s (Gunnar) school project. Her family seemed to be too busy to work it in to their schedules and I was more than happy to help. She mailed me Flat Stanley, and I took him to many places such as my workplace, drumming class, and to the annual Beltane festival in Newport News, VA. I have posted photos. What a great idea, and an awesome project! We were quite disappointed to learn, that the children did not have an opportunity to present the letters or photos to their class. I was hoping there was some kind of website, if not I had planned on creating my own. Great work Dale!
