We are finally the proud grandparents of a “Flat Stanley”. Our granddaughter, Abby, is participating in a class project in which they send a laminated doll cutout to different people around the country and they proceed to take pictures of their Flat Stanley posing in different locations.

Pictures are taken and Flat Stanley is eventually sent back to the student who then shares with their class all the different places that their Flat Stanley visited. Since we are in Alabama near the ocean Abby sent it to us to take around and get some pictures.

We’ve taken “Flat Abby” to the beach, the Naval Aviation Museum and today we went to Billy’s Seafood open-air fish market. We will be heading back towards Indiana in about 10 days so we will take more pictures as we head north.

The goal is for Abby to share with her class and together they will learn some interesting map skills as they track the different places their flat selves have visited.
