My Flat Stanley Was First! (Writer's Workshop)

This is one of Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop prompts: To share a string of emails. Well, I was going to do this anyway because Monday, when i checked my email it gave me such a lift to find this:

Hi Karen!

I can't thank you enough for helping out with our Flat Stanley project. I wish you could have seen the excitement on Aidyn's face when he opened the envelope and saw the pictures you sent. It was truly special.

I hope you had an amazing Valentine's.

It was fun to participate and I'm so glad your little boy got such a thrill out of it. Just wondering how many he received? I could do a follow-up post on it. I was surprised how many people actually heard of Flat Stanley.

So far, yours is the only one we received back! We've sent out 25 and we're mailing out more tomorrow so I'm expecting they'll probably start coming in soon.

We were all sick with a nasty stomach bug last week so we didn't start the book yet. Today, we're going out to buy a scrapbook and yours is our first page. :)


I am so glad I participated in this little project and encourage you to do it too. What an easy way to brighten someone's day! If you'd like to participate, here's the link to her original post where you can get the instructions: Can He Come To Your House?

Oh I love Flat Stanley! My friend was a teacher in San Diego for little ones and her classroom sent out Flat Stanley in letters to each state, asking that the recipients return him with things unique to their state. So I had lots of fun sending him along with Massachusetts momentos :0)

I love Flat Stanley! The 2nd graders at the school where I teach do this every year. Because we have a lot of families from other countries, Flat Stanley gets to visit a lot of cool places.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
