The ALL POWERFUL library Card

This morning Andrea and I brought the kids out... all five!! But we were even more brave.... we brought the kids to library and ate lunch out:)

The kids actually did really, really well at the library. I usually have to do a little chasing around to keep them at the tables and off the computers... but maybe b/c we had TWO moms, they decided they couldn't get away with too much :)

And I actually had a chance to pick out some fun books. And Anna and Christopher picked out their favorites as well.

Here's a picture of all of the kiddies....reading their books:)


I wasn't planning to make this the day for Anna to get her own library card.... but I just asked about it and we started the process. All three of my kids LOVE books.... of course because she's older Anna is the one who we can see the love of reading more clearly.

She was SOOO excited about getting her free library card!! She proudly printed her name on the back of the card. And then on the ENTIRE way to Wendy's she told me about how important it was that everyone has a library card... even slipping a couple of times calling it a credit card. hahhaa

I had to talk her out of taking her library card to Wendys, the the park and Walmart. She was pretty determined about taking it to Walmart because she wanted to buy something with it... I had to repeatly tell we can only use it at the library to borrow books and videos!!

When we got home she left it on the counter so she could show Brian when he got home!!! And she's had it in her hands since she showed him....

Christopher wanted to know when he could get his library card.... hmmm...

jordan and josh felt so big when they got their first library card. they still make over it and act like it is their "credit card".

so wonderful how your children are getting excited about learning and reading.

They did do well... except for Calebs mood! ugh.. Its so frustrating.. he can be so sweet to be around.. then you go out in public and he can be a nasty lil bugger. Atleast he played well at the park, eventually...

Ah! This opens my bookseller's heart to see Anna loving books and having her own library card. Tell her, I am proud that she likes reading and books. If she and you want I can go and look at popular childrenbooks (or those I read as little girl) and see whether they are published in English, too, and give you the titles.
