A Visit from a Flat Friend

A beautiful little doll recently came to visit.  A 3rd grader we know read Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown, a book about a boy who is flattened by a bulletin board.  No worries.  He survives and makes the best of things by slipping under doors, flying like a kite, and visiting friends through the mail.  So PC’s flat, pink skirt-wearing friend came in the mail to us for some adventures in China.

She spent a couple of weeks in Shenyang, in the Liaoning Province of northeast China.  And because we had to make a special trip to Hong Kong (future blog entry), she flew all the way to the south of China for some fun there too.

I’ve mailed her back that 3rd grade class in Indiana, along with her journal, photos, some postcards and souvenirs for PC and her friends.  It was a pleasure.
