Another childhood milestone...

Yesterday, was a wonderful day in more ways than one. After all the excitement of therapies, we headed to the library to get Faith her first library card!

Our library is tiny, I mean really tiny, like about 5 rows including the side walls! The librarian was so nice she gave us the paperwork to fill out and once it was done I let Faith hand it to her.

And here we are, Faith's first library card! All grown up, she is! She chose four books about horses, a book about guide dogs and three videos about horses and zoo animals.

While we were checking out when the librarian told us that they were having a reptile exhibit show in the community building, next door. So off we went to check it out...
More on that tomorrow.
Faith was so proud of her books in her little book bag, she carried it out to the car (see, Dr. Boucher, we remember what you said about carrying stuff!). Of course, five books doesn't go very far in this house. I started keeping a log of all the books we read and in 5 days there were thirty books! So we read all of them last night, LOL, I guess we will be visiting pretty often!

Excellent!

Very much like our family, too. Books are an important part of life in our family. You and Faith might just beat us on the count though!

YAY!
After reading your post last week that you were going to do this....

I decided we are going to go get Eli his library card, too.

Our little tiny local library is having a craft and fun week next week....we are going to go and participate a day or two :)

Em is getting her library card this week, and Jude is going with her. On another note, Jude has been having severe problems with his legs at night, and then twitching during the day. We were told he might be dislocating them from the hip, and he needs a special bed. I know Faith had leg issues. Any advice?

We have a tiny library too! I drive a little further out to go to the big one. Don't know why I bother--the kid STILL hates books.

Congrats to Miss Faith on yet another milestone--she's taking the world by storm!
