A Step Towards Manhood

While my parents were visiting, we took the opportunity to take Gabriel to apply for his first library card. I intentionally waited for my parents to come into town for this because I have such a vivid recollection of when my mom took me to get my first library card that I wanted her to be a part of this too.

Brothers outside of the library.

Filling out the application.

At the counter, waiting for his card. Papa looks on.

With his new card.

After a couple of hours participating in library summer activities and reading a bunch of books, Ethan is ready for a nap ... or a snack ... or both.

I found your site from Sprite’s Keeper. I love it. I’m going to poke around a little bit, but don’t worry I’ll put everything back where I found it!!

Lily just got her first library card this summer, too! (I really wish I had been thoughtful enough to take some pictures!)

That's my kind of summer!:) my kids haven't been to the library here yet, unless it's with the school because it's in town. I'm such a wuss for downtown driving.
