We have been spending may days at the local library. They have started up their story time on Fridays for little ones which we attended last week. They do a craft along with the stories so Grant and Sandra got to make rainbow fish. They love their fish :). We have also been going and letting the kids pick books, imagine that. I have always been concerned that letting them get books would be a problem because they would either loose them, rip them, or the baby would get them. None of these things have happened yet so that is nice. I have even been letting them pick a movie from the library. Yes we have plenty of movies, but it is always nice to get a new one to enjoy. Sometimes the movies are too scratched to watch which is a bummer, but otherwise it is nice to have something we usually don't watch (plus it's free!).
For our FHE last night we went to the library. They do a bedtime story night with milk and cookies once a month. Jeff was studying so we trucked out on a field trip for FHE. The kids had a great time. I would say it helped to have the milk and cookies, but my kids really do love books. Talmage has even gotten to go to the library at school and borrow a book. Maybe our love of reading has to do with Talmage's great reading.
Out of all of the fun of the library, I would add that it would be nice if it was a little closer. Oh well. It gets us out of the house and the books keep my kids entertained for days! I love my happy reading little ones :).
