Flat David Wraps Up a DARTable Adventure


Thank you for suggesting places for Flat David’s DARTable adventure last week. With so much to see and do in North Texas, he didn’t experience a dull moment.


Last Wednesday, Flat David and his aunt got up close and personal with the Traveling Man in Deep Ellum and marveled at the Mustangs of Las Colinas.

On Thursday, they visited the Dallas World Aquarium, rode the M-Line Trolley to Kylde Warren Park and spent a day in the great outdoors.

In the evening, Flat David visited the Dallas Museum of Art during the reception for the 2018 DART Student Art Contest winners. He enjoyed meeting the young artists and seeing their work.

Friday, Flat David and his aunt rode the Trinity Railway Express to Fort Worth and visited the Fort Worth Zoo.

They also set their eyes on the Farmers Branch Historical Park Saturday before Flat David returned home to Portland, Oregon Sunday.

He had so much to tell his parents!

In class back in Oregon, 7-year-old David and his classmates read “Flat Stanley”, a book by Jeff Brown about a boy named Stanley who turned flat (but, unhurt) when a bulletin board fell on him. Stanley’s parents took advantage of his flat condition and mailed him to visit relatives in California.

David’s class gained inspiration from the book to take part in a “Flat Stanley” assignment of their own.

We’re glad Flat David experienced North Texas. Although he was sad his visit with titia Linda came to an end, he looked forward to sharing stories about his DARTable adventure with his classmates.
