We've been hosting Flat Stanley!

That's right . . . we've had a house guest for the past month (fortunately, he doesn't eat very much)! His name is Flat Stanley, and he's the star of a book called Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. The book is about a young boy named Stanley who is accidently squished "as flat as a pancake" when a bulletin board falls on tope of him. The story goes on to share the advantages that Stanley discovers about being flat, as well as some of his adventures while flat -- including helping to solve a mystery in an art museum and being mailed to California for a vacation.

Anyway, we've been Flat Stanley's host family courtesy of Hailey, one of Lael's friends from church. We even took Stanley to In the Light Ministries' Harvesters Conference in Lancaster. Here are some pictures we took on our trip . . .

While in Lancaster, our family stayed at the Courtyard (a Marriot affliate).
Here is Flat Stanley wearing a wardrobe designed by Lael.
It was perfect for the spring-time weather we enjoyed while in Lancaster!

Stanley really enjoyed riding the elevator -- and wanted to push the buttons all the time!

The pool was a favorite of Lael and Jaden. Stanley really wanted to join them, but he was a little bit concerned about how soggy he might get. He decided to keep his distance!

All that fun can really wear out a host and her guest.
Here are Lael and Stanley catching a nap in between activities.
