Friends from "Across the Pond"

We are so excited to have two friends visiting us from "across the pond."  That means they are from England!  They arrived on yesterday with two of our friends who had visited them in England. They came in their school uniforms!  They are from a town called Longbenton which is close to the city Newcastle Upon Tyne in the north east of England.  They will join us for school on Monday and we will post pictures afterwards.  We will be looking up their town on the map and looking through the pictures they sent of our Flat Stanley's visit.

We look forward to showing them around our town and taking them to visit some landmarks.

Visiting with our Flat Friends - La-la and Clarence!

I have finally uploaded the photos from some of the places we have taken our flat friends from California to visit. The pictures are loaded to our North America page.  We especially had fun visiting the Franciscan Monastery and the National Zoo with them in honor of Saint Francis' Feast Day. 
Daniel, Sophia, La-la, and Clarence pose for a picture with the Pope!
Okay - not the real Pope - but it was still fun!

It is so exciting to have so many friends coming to visit us for a while.  We are enjoying visiting places and collecting postcards to send back with our friends.  We have gone camping, to a science center, and down to Washington DC.  We cannot wait to see where we will go next!

God Bless,
Daniel, Sophia and Jennifer
