We just love the library.
Today we did something a little different. After spending all day at home enjoying cleaning, cooking, and playing, we went to the library at night. This was a big deal "Wow, we're out really late", Landon says, although it is really only 7:00, but it is getting darker these days.
I was able to register William for a program about balance. They read a story and talked about balance and made a balancing clown which is a huge success.
While he was in class Landon and I scoured the book shelves, we were looking for a book on Sabertooth Tigers. Once discovered, we also saw books on all wild cats and had to get one of each. Then we found a series of short chapter books that we are going to read before rest time. The Mercy Watson books. They had 5 out of 6 books. I tried to convince him just to get the first two. We will be back at the library next week. "But Mom, what if someone takes them? We need to put a hold on #4" (it was not there). There was no stopping this child. We continued to get all sorts of books, and each time he found one it was like he discovered a great treasure (which I think he did). He would yell, "Look at this one or I just have to get this".
When William's class was over, Landon ran and told him all the new books he discovered and then Will was picking out his discoveries.
At one point a young girl ask what all the books were for. The boys just looked at her and said "To read". Landon continues with, "I read in my head."
