oh the sweet signs of spring!!
I won't share our flower beds covered with tumble weeds!
I hope Willem, Hazel and I can do some raking and cleaning up this afternoon.
Yesterday afternoon a few of us PTA members set up for the Scholastic Book Fair.
The spring book fair is Buy 1 Get 1 Free, so this is a hit. Lots of books! Lots of students excited about books! I was drooling over some of the books. There are several great recipe and cook books for sale this time around too. I noticed that Flat Stanley is for sale. I think this will be one of the books we purchase because we have had a fun time getting to know Flat Stanley over the past six months.
Emma Willemsen who is one day younger than Merit (and her mom is one day younger than me!) sent us Flat Stanley at the beginning of the school year. We were to take him on a few adventures and share our life in Moses Lake with him.
Stanley flew to North Dakota in the fall.
This is our good buddy Jeff, also a pilot, showing Stanley a good time.
Stanley loved hunting.
It was truly a guys trip.
Stanley had a few scary experiences in North Dakota.
(Don't worry, this one won't be sent to Emma's third grade class)
Stanley learned to drive the golf cart when he was here. Riding
with him is a bit frightening, but it sure is exciting.
Merit and Stanley
Stanley loves the view from one of our trees in the front yard.
Have you or your kids read Flat Stanley?
Do you have any book suggestions for our family?
It is so much fun to make reading exciting and enjoyable!
Emma, if you happen to read this, thanks for sending Stanley!!
We are sending him back to you with some pictures on Monday.
