Weekly Gratitude...

The Library. I love reading and have tried to instill that love in Rainee. The joy you get out of using your imagination... is wonderful. I feel lucky to have several libraries fairly close by and each with a story time and a craft every week. But this summer's schedule has only permitted us to go to the new library, which is about 5 minutes away. I love going in and seeing all the new books sitting on the selves... and watching Rainee's face get all excited over books she's found. It's been a great place to rest and recoup from a hot summer day. As soon as we get in, we grab several books, find a couch to sit down on and then we start to peruse the books that caught our eye. I love our library time together and I love watching her eyes light up when she's found a book she has to take home. Our library is a good friend to both Rainee and I. I'm grateful to be able to share it with her... and grateful to see her joy for reading blossom. It really is a lovely place to spend together.

She is so sweet. Bryn has always been a book lover, too. We are very lucky to have our public library onlyy 5 minutes away from home, too!

Have a great week, Michelle! :-)

This reminds me of Autumn,when she was little she would fall asleep holding her books, instead of teddy bears! And to this day, you can always find her reading two or three books at a time! And Justice just loves his "Wishbone" books(they are about a dog) Rainee might like them in a couple of years!

Love,Moira
