I am a second grade teacher in Palatine,IL (25 mi. W of Chicago).  My daughter's 3rd grade class did a FS journal activity this spring.  My kindergarten daughter felt left out, so we made a FS and sent him to our cousin in Urbana, IL (home of U of I).  They visited Flatville, IL (40 miles or so from Urbana).  Attached is a photo of Stanley in Flatville, IL.
