"I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves."
I couldn't be more thrilled with Nolan's summer. He's plowing through the Magic Tree House series at an average of 2* books/day. Going to the Winona library in the summer is one of my happiest memories as a kid. I see that they've remodeled it a bit, but that library is awesome. Old, musty, glass floors upstairs, many nooks and crannies. I'd get a stack as big as I could carry and read them all in just a few days. The wait to go back was agonizing. The library is still one of my happy places. Occasionally, I'll feel like Nolan should be doing something more-enjoying the weather, being a kid, whatever. So, I kick him outside to the hammock. Problem solved.
Look at his legs. It seems that a giraffe has moved in.
