My niece’s daughter, Kate, who lives in Minnesota had a class project after reading Flat Stanley to draw herself on a piece of paper and mail herself to Maine. My job was to introduce her to the great state of Maine taking pictures, purchasing artifacts / memorabilia and generally showing her around.
Well….. I got into it. Taking her to my Career Development Facilitator (CDF) class one day for presentations, showing her the State Capital, letting her ride some lobsters, and stopping by the President of Colby Colleges’ office for pictures. I documented some of the places we visited (including the oldest blockhouse from a fort on the Kennebec & Sebasticook River from the 1700’s) and sent her a few items to remember her trip by.
