After not showing up on my blog page for months, maybe even a year, the sitemeter is now there. I'm afraid to breathe or cough because it might go away.
I want to thank Kristine who gave me the idea for Flat Stanley, and to Sandie who sent me the link to the templates. At first when I looked at the web site it appeared to require Apps, and as I've said before I don't do apps. But I found out the apps are not necessary. I printed out several templates and just now took them over to Autumn and Arianna to color for me. I did the Flat Stanley one, but there are also girl figures as well and I printed some of them thinking that we will use the girlie template on our upcoming road trip to Oregon.
My granddaughter Autumn is probably the best person I know to color a picture. She does a beautiful job with it, and the colors she does are always bright and bold - just what is needed for a little paper doll who is going to appear on photographs.
I can't believe I have never heard of Flat Stanley, and he's been around since 1964! I was around Ara's age in 1964 and had many other things on my mind I guess.
I stopped at AAA this morning and picked up the individual state maps I'll be using for my trip to NY, and will send them soon to my grandsons. This is going to be so much fun for me, and I hope it's half as enjoyable for the kids as it is for me. But I don't know why "Fat Albert" is what comes to my mind first instead of "Flat Stanley".
