Flat Matthew Geography Project: Welcome to Virginia, Flat Matthew! flatmatthewc
I am so honored to to welcome Flat Matthew to my home! One of the little hoomans (brother) of @coopermadeofawesome is learning about geography by sending a 2D version of himself all around the world! 🌏 I think that Fenty @franandfenton may be trying to get on my good side and distract me from his usual antics by sending Flat Matthew my way. 🤨 Well, whatever the reason, mama and I are delighted to have him here!
I live in Fairfax, Virginia, on the east coast of the US. I'm about 10 miles away from the border of Maryland and about 12 miles away from the nation's capital, Washington, DC. The Pentagon is 11 miles away from me (especially poignant today, the anniversary of 9-11). Virginia is one of the 13 original colonies, and Jamestown, VA was the first English settlement in the US. Virginia is know as “the birthplace of a nation,” and 8 US presidents were born here! We have it all here, from gorgeous mountains (Blue Ridge) to beaches (Virginia Beach) to lakes and rivers and forests. October tends to be especially gorgeous as the leafy trees shine in gorgeous shades of red, yellow, and orange.
While Flat Matthew was here, I showed him the important things (swipe thru pics): 1. snackies 2. Mama in the kitchen and 3. snoozles. We didn’t go on walkies together, because I didn’t want him to fly away!
We would have loved to have taken Flat Matthew site seeing, but we did get in some virtual visits! 4. The University of Virginia, in Charlottesville. Mama's alma mater, and truly a spectacularly gorgeous university. 5. Mount Vernon, in Alexandria, home of our first president, George Washington. 6. Colonial Williamsburg. Williamsburg was important during the American Revolution, and it’s where Patrick Henry famously said, “Give me liberty, or give me death!” I hope you’ve all enjoyed these fun facts about Virginia! Flat Matthew has packed his bags and will head to his next destination tomorrow! Stay tuned to find out where he shows up!
