I got a nice surprise today. I am the next “keeper” of Flat Stanley, a school project for my special needs niece. Today I took him to lunch with his grandma and 2 grandpa’s. Introduced him to his cousin Chuy – who scared him as he got sniffed, but then they became good buddies. I even made him some hiking clothes and boots; I plan on taking him for a walk and/or hike this weekend.

I might be showing more photos of flat Stanley while he is in my care.

74 days down, 291 to go!!

  1. Love the whimsey in this set

    1. I had a really fun time doing this project for my niece. I made him a hiking outfit complete with hiking boots, and took him everywhere. It surprised me how many people recognized him. I took over 100 photos of his adventures over the 4 days I had him.

      1. That’s pretty awesome. I bet she thought it was awesome.

        1. I’m not sure, she has a bit of Down’s syndrome. Her mom really liked the outfit I made, but my niece never said anything about it. As far as I know she only saw the pictures on her moms phone, but when she and her mom came out for a visit I showed them to her on my 12.9” tablet, that’s when she really got into seeing his adventures and was smiling.

          1. Could be a phone image is too small for her. The tablet is about the size about a book and easier to see. It’s cool that she enjoyed the images. there’s a huge variety of mental age in Down’s so it depends on what age her mind has developed to. As development is slower, she’ll probably enjoy the adventures for a lot longer than most kids. I didn’t see the images on your instagram. Why not share it there too? a lot of adults enjoy that kind of whimsical humor too.

          2. My sister and brother-in-law were just told that her mind is at about 4 (she’ll be 12 in July). This little one has been through quite a bit in her short life – open heart surgery at 6 months old and then in a hospital for I don’t remember how many months with leukemia. I think she was 4 when that happened. She definitely lights up a room with her presence and is very loving to everyone.

          3. Being loving and open is the special gift of a lot of Down syndrome kids.
