We go to our local library at least once a week. It is one of the highlights of Ella's young life. Ok, I admit...it's one of the highlights of my life too...I love the library!Sometimes we make it for story hour and then we play with puzzles and pick out a new stash of books. Sometimes we miss story hour due to Ezra's morning nap and we just do our own thing. Our library has an awesome people-sized ant cave on display in the children's section this summer and both kids love to crawl in it...Ella to read, Ezra to bang on the walls and make me crawl in there after him =)
In all our visits and the hundred of books we have checked out...I have never misplaced one of them. I keep a separate basket in the living room where all the library books go. Ella knows not to mix up our books and the library ones. Well, I began getting notices for a missing "Gingerbread Man" book last week. I have scoured the entire house, car, etc. and we can't find it. I really think the library lost it because I always count the number of books we have when we get home and write that number on the calender, and then make sure we have that same number when we go to return them. I've got to find a way to convince them of this...as my fine is growing and growing every day! Yikes!
