Flat Ava

Ava’s second grade class participated in the Flat Stanley project recently. The resulting “Flat Ava” traveled to Philadelphia for a visit to our good friend Tom and his girlfriend Katie. Flat Ava returned to Quail Run via US Post with nearly 30 photos, a Pennsylvania state flag and a few other souvenirs. Tom really put so much thought and effort into this project, and I wanted to share a few of the photos and captions he sent along. From Flat Ava’s arrival at Tom’s front door, to a visit to the National Constitution Center and several other stops along the way, Flat Ava had quite the trip!

Ava emailed Tom the moment the package arrived. I assumed it was to tell him how grateful she was, but as it turns out, she needed to know if Flat Ava was really with the President. I think, though, “Flat Barack” just happened to be visiting Philadelphia at the same time.

Thanks so much, Tom and Katie!

    How very sweet of Tom & Katie to show Flat Ava around Philly! Such a cool project.

  3. Dear Tom (and Katie) – Thank you so much for spending so much time on Ava’s project and for finding such creative ways to follow through with the idea. You are very good friends!!!
