My niece, M, is in the first grade. Her class is doing a project based on the book Flat Stanley. Flat Stanley was run over by a steamroller and had a series of adventures, including one where he travels through the mail. Everyone in M's class had to make a flat version of themselves and mail it to a friend or relative that lived far away.
Flat M helped me bake cupcakes and peanut butter banana bread for my class
So I received Flat M a little over a month ago. I was supposed to take Flat M with me on various adventures and take pictures of her visit with us and then mail her back to M's class with letters and stories about her visit as well as information about where I live. It sounded like a cool project and I was happy to agree when my sister, Amy, asked if I'd play along. Unfortunately she arrived at the end of a busy semester so Flat M sat on my desk for longer than I'd like.
Flat M went camping with me, b, and Pupzilla
So my priority for this week is to put together the story of Flat M's visit and get it in the mail before school is over (half the class has been returned already and I know M must be getting anxious for her turn).
