Do you know Flat Stanley?
Apparently he's a character from a 1950's kids book that was accidentally flattened when a bulletin board fell on him while he was sleeping.
Since then, Flat Stanley has traveled the world via envelopes and has seen some amazing sights.
Flat Stanley arrived at our home yesterday and we treated him like a guest.
We took him to the park,
he survived riding on the dangerous streets...
he went down slides,
climbed up real high....
got some Portuguese kisses...one on each cheek,
Saw a sunset and boats on the Atlantic ocean,
ate some traditional Portuguese soup,
At an Italian restaurant...go figure?
Can you find Flat Stanley in this picture?
I must say, that Stanley behaved himself like a perfect gentleman while visiting us. He's on his way back to Mississippi to Maya, the sweet young lady that sent him to us. Along with Stanley is a paper telling all about our city and country.
Now, Maya gets to take Flat Stanley back to school and tell of his travels and show these pictures to her classmates.
What a fun idea!
.................Or am I just desperate for visitors?
