Today’s library outing got off to a weird start. The first book that Charlie chose featured the Jewel Fairies and a costume ball. The second was about Strawberry Shortcake (I didn’t know she had books) and had a good message, but saying “berry” in place of “very” started to bother me a lot by the end.
I was happy to spot the 75th anniversary edition of Mike Mulligan and that’s the book we brought home. We both enjoyed the story. I have a new appreciation for the book, too; I love how the words and illustrations play together on the pages. Matthew Broderick narrates a bonus free download. Highly recommended all around.
After nap, we took a walk to check out the construction site next door. Marc had suggested Charlie might find the new driving range “fun and interesting” and he was right. Excavators, dump trucks, bulldozers and tractors. If it hadn’t started to rain, we probably could’ve stayed for an hour.
Hoping next week’s weather is nice. I might bring chairs.
