I was thinking that this vacation was not the right time, we couldn't afford it, wouldn't find child care. You know. The usual.
Then, suddenly, in the mail, we get this thing called Flat Stanley.
Flat Stanley is a school project that George's cousin's daughter is doing. Flat Stanley has until May to travel around from person to person, for a couple of pictures and stories of his travels. Then the person who has him in May sends him back to the school and the kids will see where Flat Stanley has gone and what he's been up to.
I took one look at this little book and thought, it's kismet. It's fate. The timing could not have been better.
When George got home, I looked at him and told him about Flat Stanley, and how desperately I wanted Flat Stanley to go to Cancun.
And that sealed Flat Stanley's fate.
He had a great time.
But now, it's time for him to move on.
I would love for Flat Stanley to see much of the world before he goes back to Winnipeg.
I'm thinking maybe to Carrie in Wisconsin?
Or Ronda in Florida?
Betty in Paraguay?
Perhaps even Lilly in Australia?
Wouldn't that be totally cool for Jamie to get Flat Stanley back and he has traveled to so many wonderful places??
They would have to be willing to take Flat Stanley to a special landmark where they live and take a couple of pictures. They would have to write a short story, using a page or two of the book, and then send it on to the next person.
Which means that they would have to be okay with giving their address to a complete stranger or two, via myself.
So, what do you think, my friends? Is this do-able??
