Flat Stanley, Flat Sarah Kate

Erin's cousin, Sarah Kate, sent Erin a Flat Stanley with a letter explaining the concept. Flat Stanley is a book about a boy who gets flattened when a whiteboard falls on him. Since he is flat, he can now travel around in an envelope because the mail is a lot cheaper than an airline ticket. At school, Sarah Kate made a Flat Sarah Kate and sent it to Erin. Erin had to take Flat Sarah Kate somewhere, take pictures, write a letter explaining where she went and then mail the Flat Sarah Kate back to Sarah Kate's school. Erin and I decided to take Flat Sarah Kate to the Fort Worth Stockyards. This is the letter we sent along the with the pictures.

Flat Sarah Kate’s Big Adventure to Fort Worth TX
November 9, 2008
Flat Sarah Kate got mailed to Fort Worth Texas to see her 5 year old cousin, Erin. Erin took Flat Sarah Kate to the Stockyards. You see, 100 years ago, all the cattle in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Colorado came to Fort Worth to be sold. Even today, you can still see a lot of different cowboys in the Stockyards. Flat Sarah Kate saw some real cowboys (picture #1), a tin cowboy (#2), a movie star cowboy, John Wayne (#3), a football Cowboy, Tony Romo (#6), and a little girl cowboy riding a mechanical bull (#7). Finally, Flat Sarah Kate visited some cowboys in jail. Cousin Erin had a lot of fun showing Flat Sarah Kate all the sights of Fort Worth Texas.

We had a lot of fun showing Flat Sarah Kate the sites in Fort Worth.
