Summer Reading

Today was the last day of school!  Yay!  I think I must be out of my mind for saying that but I'm looking forward to actually being home for long stretches of time.  The girls both had a good last day.  Both had pizza parties.  After picking up Meg I took them to the library, where else do I like to go, to sign them up for the summer reading program.  In years past you had to fill out a paper form, were given a folder with all kinds of flyers, and were allowed to pick out a prize just for signing up.  Now it's all done on the computer.  I'm glad they're saving trees doing it this way but why would I take my three kids to the library to use the computer when I could sign them up in the comfort of my own home when they're in bed?  I wouldn't.  So we picked out some books and movies.  Mattey's library trip was a little more special.  We filled out an on line form for her to get her own library card.  She was thrilled.

Library Card

Her card is way cooler than my card.  I think I'll have to loose mine so I can get a new one.  It'll probably cost me a few dollars but it will be worth it.

After I'm done posting I will be signing myself and all the kids up for the program.  I would love to win one of the prizes.

Two days ago Mattey's new glasses came in.  I like them a lot better than the other pair she had.  She must have had a growth spurt because her Rx changed quite a bit in just 7 months.

Hint--rip the sticker off your old one, they will replace it for free. The librarian told me that. ;) OR wash it, in your pants pocket. It makes the ruining look more accidental.
