Remember when I was at the library and had the kids decorate large cut-outs of me (Flat Frankie's)? It was so fun watching the kids! Well, one young boy couldn't be there for this class, so we sent his flat Frankie via mail... all the way to Alaska!! His name is Koya and my mom and I loved having him in our class... he is so nice and sweet. Here he is with his flat Frankie. Job well done, Koya!!
