Flat Stanley Is In Town

 Meet Mr. Flat Stanley
Flat Stanley has finally arrived making his way from San Dimas, CA
to Bozman, MD via priority mail through the Postal Service.  
 We knew Flat Stanley was going to visit and we are
happy to be part of this school project.
 Flat Stanley's first look at the eastern shore of
Maryland, our yard, pool and frozen creek.
Don't pack me in a box! 
I sent text pictures and notes to Mommy Sarah to share with
Kaitlyn when she came home from school showing Flat Stanley's
first day here. Sarah said Kaitlyn was using the tracking number 
on the package to see what part of the US he was in each night.
 Even with the long journey across the United States
behind him Flat Stanley still wanted to go to burger night
at Theo's Restaurant in St. Michaels last night.
I think all the travel and arriving in his new home
for a few weeks finally caught up with Flat Stanley ... so he
snuggled up with his new buddy Derby for a good night sleep.
Kaitlyn and Cole giving me 2 thumbs up
for taking such good care of Flat Stanley.
Now the pressure is really on to do something fun
with him each day and text it out to the grand kids.
Wilson will compile a story and print out
pictures on 8-1/2"x11" photo paper so Kaitlyn can
have a nice presentation to share with her class.
Thank goodness she dressed Flat Stanley for winter
or I would be sewing him a coat and pair of slacks.
