Spring Break

Well, after nearly two days of too much tv and time spent in our jim-jams, we finally got out of the house. It was cold and snowy—not exactly what comes to mind when you hear the words spring and break used in the same sentence. But we bundled up anyway, braved the cold, and headed for the public library. We got 27 books, two movies, and two books on cd.

It makes me feel like our outing in the cold was totally worth it when I came upon this scene this morning:

She’s “reading” one of our favorite books, Edwina: The Dinosaur Who Didn’t Know She Was Extinct by one of our favorite authors, Mo Willems.

Naturally I had to take a picture because this peaceful scene will probably not last. Unfortunately. She will soon be dancing, running, jumping, singing, yelling, acting crazy, making us laugh, fighting with her older sister, smothering her little sister, sitting in time out, and helping me to learn patience. It’s her daily routine.

And we love her for it.

    On first glance, I thought it was Inez…they DO look like sisters!

    I love getting a whole box of *new* books for the kids to love. i hate searching for them when they are due.
