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.
Practicing piano . . .
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!
My, that’s a lovely First Position, 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.
