Our cousin, Emily, lives in Florida and is in the second grade. As a class project, she sent us FLAT STANLEY
so he could visit with us a while before sending him back home. However, Stanley arrived naked (so he could fit best in the envelope – hee hee) so we were put in charge of clothing and entertaining him while he stayed with us over the past two weeks.
Red and blue seemed to be staple boy colors so we did some cutting and pasting (sewing like a child) from old baby clothes to form his “get-up”.
Stanley has never complained. He’s satisfied with whatever he’s given and whereever he’s taken. Today, he visited our flower garden where he and Andrew spotted a few sprouts.
Afterwards, Luke took Stanley on a shoulder ride.
We will be returning Stanley back to his home in Florida with our cousin, Emily. We have certainly enjoyed having him around – he was the perfect guest!
