Enjoying the Library

A visit to the library is always a very special occasion for us.

We only go every three weeks or so. I never have a strong desire to actually go that day and always have the feeling that we can change our plans and go to the library another day, but since our previous batch of library books are due, I am forced to leave our cozy hobbit habitat and go to the Library.

I know I am silly! 🙂

Once we are there I am so very glad we went! Not only is it fitting for the Autumn season, but we leave with a huge pile of new unread books.

Unread, new books are as much fun for me as they are for Winston 😉

With my sister living next door, we all have a wonderful time sharing and splitting up books. After the week passes by, we switch up the library books again and enjoy the fresh thrill of new reading material.

Winston does enjoy reading to himself, I’ll find him going through his books, picking out the words and saying them in such an adorable way. I really need to capture him on video.

He mentions “Pa”, “Jack” and “deer”,  from The Little House on the Prairie, randomly throughout the day.

As soon as he saw the word ‘Piggy’ from ‘No More Pacifier for Piggy’ he fell in love. He carries the book with him all around the house. It is his favorite right now. I think he really likes the word ‘Piggy’. And when I see his little lips form the word, I want to make time stand still. I don’t ever want to forget these moments!

I hope you are enjoying your library visits and books as much as we are!

Happy Autumn!

    Okay, I am heading out the door, and I couldn’t go until I left a comment here. This post is so, so, sweet…. It brings me back to when you kids were little; it makes me very homesick for those days. The sweetest thing is picturing you two girls living there next to each other and sharing each other’s lives, and the babies sharing each others lives… it gives me such a complete, contented feeling… I can’t wait to get out there and be in the middle of it all. I love the books and the bookends, and I love the picture of Winston and Zane reading together.

    Love you so much,

    What you said about going to the library is EXACTLY how I am! The boys love choosing new books, as do I, it’s just that I put off going there until the books are due back. I thought maybe because it’s in the next village along and we have to make a special point of going along was maybe the reason. It’s not somewhere we just pass in our day to day routines.

    Good to know I have a kindred spirit out there :0)
