Flat Stanley visited us via my cute cousin Annie and we took him around to some of the sites that make the Commonwealth of Virginia famous. There was a lot for Flat Stanley to see in the area in which we are located, just across the river from our nation's capital. We visited Mount Vernon, the home of the very first POTUS, as well as his grave; the graves of many of the men and women who died serving our country at Arlington National Cemetery; and the U.S. Marine Corps Memorial, a large statue depicting a famous photo taken during the battle of Iwo Jima during the second World War.
It sometimes takes something like Flat Stanley to remind me that I live in such a great place.
