Flat Stanley


Last month we participated in a homeschool pen pal project. A family from Texas mailed us their Flat Stanley. I asked Lilah where we should take him and without hesitation she said to our garden! So off we went. Our garden is a plot in a larger community garden. We surrounded our plot with American Flags. It is beautiful. Our family is patriotic. My Grandfather is a WWII vet. My Uncle served in the Navy. My cousin, a Vietnam Vet. Next month my brother is set to lead a platoon of young Marines to war. My family knows that freedom is not free.

Love Flat Stanley. I followed your blog, I noticed we use some of the same homeschool curriculum.

Thanks! I just read your most recent post. I have to check out the Horrible Science books. I think my girls would love them!

Cute pic! My daughter and I did our own Flat Stanley project last year, it was a lot of fun! I have a brother currently in Afghanistan. I'll keep your brother in my thoughts!

I love what this picture represents... and the image itself. Fun, exploration, geography, patriotism, gardening, family. So many elements to appreciate!

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
