The flat guy arrived yesterday here in Wisconsin. He also was sleeping without his eyes. But we glued them back on. My sister took him downstairs to do his laundry then part of my family went out to eat with him. So far he is fat and I mean flat and happy...Boxman

Stanleyetta arrived the other day, everything was intact!  We were hoping to get a picture of her in the snow, but the rain melted it away!  My son is very excited to bring her around.  I'm thinking she'll become a New England Patriots and a Boston Red Sox fan in no time!

 :2thumbsup;  Great pics of Flat Stanley Boxman. Angel will love the snow.

Sluff, with all the rush of Christmas and travelling, I have about 4 Flat Stanley's that have not made it out because I have to buy manila envelopes. So sorry. He will be soon on his way though.

KellyT, I think I had enough addresses to take Flat Stanley. But there is another teacher at school doing the project and she may need someone to take in a homeless Flat Stanley. When we get back to school, I'll ask. I'm sorry if I didn't respond to  your PM. Things are crazy here!

If anyone has any questions, please let me know.

mine must be one that needs a travel "crate" (manila envelope) because he hasn't arrived as well.

mibara even though it would mean a late arrival back to you i would be glad to send my stanley to kellyt after he visits my sister's classroom in oregon. he would be on his way to becoming a world traveler. what do you think?

 :(  I fear our district workers may have taken vacation before they got all of the Flat Stanley's mailed.

I'm sorry guys! I put them in our district mailbox on the 18th and 19th. The administration building was supposed to be open which means the district post office should have been to. They should then be out next week.

Okay.. All Flat Stanleys have left the district "post office" unless I PMed you. If you don't receive yours by Friday of next week, please let me know.

Here is the list of people that I have with Flat Stanley's arriving or have arrived:
Sluff - had to change your little person, but it should be arriving
G-Ma
Paul.Karen
Okarol
Kitkatz
Jess 21
Mikey
Grammalady
Boxman
Skyedogrocks
Rose (who when finished will send it to Lola - if you don't mind Rose)
Del (who will send to Romona - if of course you don't mind) This is the one I have yet to ship out because I ran out of Flat Stanley cut outs before I put them in the district mail. They will receive a "class" Flat Stanley.
Twirl, I have a new kiddo and I want him to get in on the experience so as soon as he makes a Flat Stanley, I want to send his to you.

So, if you have any questions, let me know. We received one Flat Stanley back this week and she visited Maryland. The kids loved hearing about her trip.

Oh, by the way...

Kidney4Traci, Jessup, Pelagia, and KellyT,

Since I ran out of Flat Stanleys before addresses, would you mind if the Flat Stanleys that came in early took another trip in an envelope and saw some of you?
