Wordful Wednesday

Do you know the story of "Flat Stanley"? This poor guy was a normal kid, who woke up one day... FLAT! Apparently, he was crushed by a bulletin board. Can you believe it? He's good though, and begins to realize all the great things he can do by being flat.... slide under doors, saves his Mom's ring by dropping through a metal grating to retrieve it and, the coolest part.... travel is CHEAP! He can fit comfortably into an envelope and travel anywhere.

Well, my son read this wonderful book in school and his class sent flat stanleys of themselves to relatives last month. My profile-challenged kid went to California to visit his Auntie, Cousins and Grandma.

The other day, we received this envelope from California and I of course thought it was my son, coming home but it wasn't. It was my neice, Flat Ke-Ke coming to visit us! So far, she has been visiting with my dogs, played on the trampoline and in the snow, watched the superbowl (in 3D) and now, she's at work with me.


She's having fun.... I think. Well, ummm.... ok.... I'm having fun!

I LOVED FLAT STANLEY WHEN MY KID'S SCHOOL DID IT!

Soooo cute!

Thanks for the nail comment. I have a great nail guy, and I am addicted to his airbrushing technique... every two weeks, it's a different design.

Wow, Flat Ke-Ke has been busy! We (I mean my son) had so much fun when he did Flat Stanley at school a few years back!

I friend of mine sent a flat "Christina" as a school project. We took pictures of her going all around post. It was the favorite of the class!

Too cute! Ryan came in as I was reading this and she said, "Is that Flat Stanley? Cool!" :)

Did you get your ninety-twelve things done today? ;)

Ok, you're having WAY too much fun with Flat Ke-Ke! I just love that story and I'm a huge fan of extending literature beyond the book. What a great project!

That's funny. My kids had to do a flat stanley. Whoever thought that up? It's fun though. People get pretty creative with it.
