flat s: first stop, Idaho!

Flat S just dropped us a line from the first stop on her tour. She was fortunate enough to spend a little time getting to know the wonderful Karen and her family in Idaho.

Karen’s family sent back a lovely story about the visit. So without further ado, I’ll turn this post over to them.

Once upon a time a slender girl named Flat S, eager for a trip around the world, arrived in suburban Idaho.  The Knight Family was elated by her arrival and spent several weeks showing her the everyday life of a family of six.

Flat S, cared for by her friend Real Bethany, enjoyed long afternoons together on the trampoline with Bethany and her little brother.

and lazy Saturday mornings playing their favorite computer games.

Flat S was a natural at caring for Webkinz and Bethany shared all her secrets for beating her brothers at their favorite games.

Flat S enjoyed running errands with us,

and Bethany’s basketball team, the Lady Sparks, let Flat S warm up with them.  Flat S is a real natural at sports and is a terrific cheerleader.

The lady can’t survive on athletics and Minecraft alone.  Hello, ballet.

Don’t forget to stretch, Flat S!

It wasn’t all fun and games, dancing, and bouncing.  Academics are important to Liesl, Todd, and Real S so we made sure Flat S kept up with her school work.  She fit right into Bethany’s third grade class at Franklin D. Roosevelt Elementary

and showed herself to be an excellent reader.

*ahem*  Girls, would you like to share that with the rest of us?

The students had been sharing their recently returned Flat Selves all week so they were eager to meet Flat S and learn about how far she had come.

Here is New York . . .

And here is Idaho (streeetch, Bethany!)

Before sending Flat S on her way we celebrated spring with cookie decorating.  Don’t worry, Liesl, she brushed her teeth after eating all that frosting and sprinkles.

And just like that, our time with Flat S came to a close.  She folded herself up and was on her way.

Bon Voyage, Flat S! Thanks for visiting!

We can’t wait to find out where S is headed and what she’ll do next! Thanks for hosting her, Karen.
