Stanley's Sunday

Today Flat Stanley and I went to church. My church is on a street called Holly Street. Stanley thought that was funny.

In church he played with the other kids in primary and had lots of fun.

On the way home I stopped and showed Stanley this giant ice fountain.

Isn't it cool? Stanley thinks so. But it was so warm today that the ice was melting fast.

After lunch Stanley played with Athena. He had another fun day.

My New Friend

I have a new friend who has come to visit me in Denver. His name is Stanley and he arrived in my mailbox. Stanley is very unusual because as you can see, he is flat. Stanley has been staying with my niece Paige, and she sent him to me in the mail.

Stanley was excited to get out of his envelope. It was a nice sunny day, so I took him to the park.

We played basketball.

Stanley slipped down the slide and played with the puzzle.

He climbed up the ropes . . .

And almost fell off! But he caught himself just in time.

On our way back home we saw a squirrel in a tree. Stanley was very excited to see a squirrel!

Stanley will have lots of fun while he is on his vacation, but he already misses Paige.

I Could Hear Them Breaking Free

Why couldn't my school choir have been this cool? I might have enjoyed singing if it had! The PS22 Chorus in New York sing my favorite song - ever. And do one of the better covers of "Private Universe" I've heard.

Here is an amazing live version of the original by Crowded House, on the steps of the Sydney Opera House.

So what was I singing in my choir? This song. Years after it was cool.

We also sang a song about painting a rainbow. No wonder I quit after the first trimester!
