Farm Friday

We had a visitor to our farm. His name is Flat Stanley, and he was sent to us from a school in Michigan. Stanley wanted a tour of our home and village, and met our hens face to face.

He helped with the chores.

And he tasted pure, Canadian maple sap!

He was a perfect houseguest, and will soon be on his way back to Michigan with a letter and photos detailing his visit to Eganville, Ontario.

  1. Too cute! Was he sent from a pen pal of one of your children? What a great idea. :)

  2. I always thought Flat Stanley was much bigger. Like life-sized or something. : ) Cute post.

  3. an engaging fellow! rather two dimensional but colourful none-the-less!

  4. I just got your email and thank you for the great laugh and my son and his classroom will be totally excited to see what great adventures Flat Stanley had in Canada.

  5. Great idea! The possibilities are endless. i'll be asking Lola to do a few family Flat-portraits to send to some people we don't get to visit often as they live to far away!

  6. You were able to post it - YAY! LOVE the photos of Flat Stanley's Canadian farm adventures. He does look as though he is ready to embrace any adventure that comes his way.

  7. Especially loving that snap of Stanley with the hens. ;-)
