We live within walking distance of the library. By walking distance, I mean less than a quarter mile. Our library is smack dab between the elementary school and our HOA park/pool. Right in the middle of a residential area. I love it. So we take walks there in the evenings often. Today, I picked up some books on the Romanovs (my latest fascination), my son got some books about the human body and a DVD of Duck Tales episodes (anyone else remember those from childhood?), my husband got a couple religious books, and my daughter got to be content with all the board books she has at home (since she likes to put books in her mouth so much).
I follow this delightful blog, and she posted this recently:
She's so right.
