Wednesdays: Library Day

I have changed my mind. Our first Make or Bake Day craft is going to have to be library bags for each child. I have a rule that each child can only check out as many books as years they are old, but that is starting to add up to a pretty heavy load for one bag.  (And that's not even counting my books. I go to the library on Tuesdays after Zumba with Caitlin because there is no possible way to browse in a library when accompanied by small children...)

But aside from the whole heavy book issue, I really enjoy sharing my love of libraries and reading with my children. I like that they are (mostly) well behaved and that they know they can ask the librarians for help in finding books. Lila can't ever be bothered to look at books while we are in the library (but she always wants one to read on the way home when the other kids are looking at their books) so I grabbed two random board books for her.  Evie chose four princess stories that I am secretly excited to read too, the illustrations look beautiful. One of Jake's selections was a Star Wars themed cookbook. Now I have get to spend the next week making and eating things like Yoda Soda and Wookie Cookie. The things we do for our children...

Chrissy, I've really been enjoying reading about your "no couch potatoes" summer plan. I'm excited to see how tomorrow goes! Your kids are very blessed to have you as a mom . . . I say that very sincerely.

I'm not sure whether I should or shouldn't let Justin know about that cookbook. He already sleeps and breathes Star Wars. I'm not sure we could handle it if he could eat it, too!

You are such a good mom to have your No Couch Potatoes plan! I always seem to forget about going to the library. I reserve books for myself online and don't think to go to their activities or let Taya look around. Thanks for inspiring me to be more active and a better library attendee.
