Fun in the Sun


Playing along with Cate's 6WS today;

here's mine

FLAT RUTHIE CAME FOR A VISIT


I found out about Flat Ruthie from reading another 6WS entry a few months back. Flat Ruthie travels the globe, like Flat Stanley does, having adventures and meeting new people.

I thought it might be fun to have Flat Ruthie come and visit us here in the San Diego area.

She arrived Thursday night. I'm looking forward to showing her the sights.

But first I'm going to put her to work (lots of work).

Come back tomorrow night or Monday and we'll show you what we've been up to.

As we say down south, "I flat want to see this!"

Love from this side!

That sounds like FUN!

We've had a couple of flat friends here that some of my grandkids have shown the sights to. It was great fun.

I am glad Flat Ruthie came for a visit... I should ask if she'd like to go with KT and me to Adventureland!

I had seen Stanley...but not Ruthie! Looking forward to her adventures!

Have fun with Flat Ruthie. I will have to come back to see where all you take her. I doubt if she is for me, I have enough trouble keep track of one woman (Mrs. Jim).

Sounds interesting and fun.

Fun! One of my sister's nephews sent my sister and her family Flat Matthew. They had to take pictures of what he did while on his visit, then send them (and him) back to the real Matthew. :)

I keep forgetting to try Six Word Saturday. I'm telling you, I have a mind like sieve sometimes! ;)

Welcome Flat Ruthie! My MIL brought a flat Stanley out years ago to visit us. It was for her grandson. My children didn't have them when they were in school but I think they are a fun idea! Hope she has a fun visit with you.

She's fun. I've taken her on two trips now- my home town and in the Algarve. Looking forward to seeing yours.

this is a new one on me--sounds like fun!

Flat Ruthie and you are going to do something that I can't acheive! Baking a cake. Can't wait to see what else you two get up to this week. (Love that whole idea of Flat Ruthie traveling around!)

Kelly said...

I've also heard of Flat Stanley, but Flat Ruthie is new to me! I've always thought that this was the cutest and most interesting way to teach kids about geography. Had Stanley or Ruthie been around when I was little, I might actually know more about that particular subject!

Shelly said...

Yea for Flat Ruthie!

Just like when Koda came to visit me! Instead of me sending my flat Koda to you with your cheesy Florida souvenir package we should have sent him on to visit bloggers around the world - why didn't we think of that back then?!

Rita said...

How funny! I hope you show us everything she's up to. :)

LOL! I remember hearing about flat Stanley when I was in elementary school and I would always crack up when I heard his name.

Can't wait to hear about Flat Ruthie's adventures! : )

Caroline said...

Sounds like a lot of fun !!!

Linda B. said...

Hadn't heard of her before. Enjoy her visit and baking. Hope Flat Ruthie takes lots of photos with her camera, too!

MorningAJ said...

Oh what a great idea! Hope you and Ruthie have a great time.

SweetMarie said...

Hope you have a great time! I'll be checking back to see what you are up to. :)

Our kids were sent a flat Stanley a few years ago from their cousin and they had fun taking photos with him.

Ruth said...

My daughter did a flat Stanley one year in school. It made it a couple places. The first person sent back stuff and sent it on and from there I don't know what happened.

Deanna said...

Flat Ruthie looks mighty happy amongst those cake mixes. Of course that apple offsets all of the bad cake mix calories!

Intense Guy said...

I hope "flat" Koda likes "flat" Ruthie!!!

:) I know Ruthie will enjoy her visit!

Flat Ruthie looks like she's open to having fun. ENJOY the visit.
