One of the kids' cousins read "Flat Stanley" in school. As a project, they sent out "flat" versions of themselves, and we got the honor of escorting "Flat Mariah" around for a day. We took her to piano lessons, to the library, to our favorite coffee shop for hot chocolate, and to the Natural History Museum. It was quite fun, and now we have plans to do our own Flat Stanley project.
