A Load of "Firsts"

I will say that we have had super fun at Adalynn's expense... I think we were cooped up so long in Little Rock, and the fact that we didn't get a real vacation this past summer, we decided to make up for lost time!

So the adventures began... we decided to treat Adalynn like "Flat Stanley". Quick synopsis: (from Wikipedia)

"The Flat Stanley Project started in 1995 by a teacher in Canada. It was meant to facilitate letter-writing by schoolchildren to each other as they document what Flat Stanley has done with them. The Flat Stanley Project provides an opportunity for students to make connections with students of other member schools who've signed up with the project. Students begin by reading the book and becoming acquainted with the story. Then they make paper 'Flat Stanleys' (or pictures of the Stanley Lambchop character) and keep a journal for a few days, documenting the places and activities in which Flat Stanley is involved. The Flat Stanley and the journal are mailed to other people who are asked to treat the figure as a visiting guest and add to his journal, then return them both after a period of time."

We have had many Flat Stanley moments at the expense of Adalynn... But it has come to be an adventure with our family. I'm not sure if Adalynn will love these moments someday, or just want to strangle her momma!
