A few weeks ago, my good blogger friend Red, over at Amazing Australian Adventures, received a package in the mail. In it were two stones, known as the Traveling Stones. Red explained that the stones had their own blog, and that they were indeed traveling They started their trip in Canada, when a woman named Darlene received two stones. She decided to send them on their way, to see where they ended up. And she blogged about it. The person she sent them to lived in Scotland. She sent them to Red. Then Red asked for volunteers, people interested in hosting the stones and sending them on their way. I volunteered to host the stones and show them around my part of the world. I waited. And waited.
Then I got this really cool package in the mail:
It was Christmas in February!
After I opened the package, I found an adorable stuffed kangaroo, and just as I was saying "Awww, look! A Kangaroo!", this happened:
My friend Red sent stickers and tattoos and a wonderful magnet! Zane has applied three tattoos so far--a centipede, a scorpion, and a green python--and he has been explaining what each one is and where they come from to everyone we meet. He is all set to bring his new Roo to school, once he gets permission. We opened the map and found Red's house, and then took a little detour to find out where the Finding Bigfoot team went to find the Yowie(Spoiler: It was the Gold Coast). We also found Sydney, since that's where Nemo's dad went to find him in the movie Finding Nemo. We try to throw in a little learning under the radar when ever we can.
But I digress.
This is the reason for the package:
But I digress.
I got the pink pearl and a coin from the UK and a boomerang from Oz. We are going to have so much fun together! I have spring break coming up, and I plan on broadening this particular stone's horizons even more before I send it on its way. Once we've had as much fun as possible without getting arrested, I will need to send them to someone new. Someone with a sense of adventure. And a camera, because as the internet says, "If it's not on camera, it didn't happen."
So, if you have blog, and would be interested in being a guest host for a lovely pink pearl and guests, email me your address and I will send them to you. Meanwhile, go check out the stone's blog at http://travelingstones123.blogspot.com
