Bentley's class read the Flat Stanley book and then each student sent their flat stanley somewhere outside of Cokeville. Of course Bentley wanted to have his Stanley go really far, so when I mentioned his Dad's cousin Ryan in Japan he was so excited. We asked Ryan and his wife Kristy if that would be okay and they agreed to it. (Bless there hearts!)
We waited for quite sometime, and I told Bentley that mail to Japan and back isn't the fastest thing. A week before school got out it came, Bentley opened it and couldn't believe just how cool his Flat Stanley was. They had dressed him, not colored him, which made Bentley even more excited. Then they listed all the places they took him and I can't remember them all but they were pretty cool. They sent candy that was the Japan version of Hello Kitty candy.
They went way beyond what we were expecting. I wish I were that motivated and creative. Thanks Ryan and Kristy, you did great and made Bentley's day and week!
