I also got rid of some books to make room for other books. I hate getting rid of books, but there comes a point where there just isn't any room. Sometimes I dream of empty book shelves and a simple "Kindle" sitting on the shelf next to a potted plant...... but that would just be too boring. I REALLY love having my books around. They are like old friends. You love to see them, even if you don't pay that much attention to them every day.
The girlies helped quite a bit, and then afternoon hit. They got a case of the "I don't know what to do's."
Sarah and Alli wanted to walk to the store with Anna, but Anna wanted to finish her book. I am not quite ready to turn Alli and Sarah onto the streets alone quite yet. Sarah is still a little scared to go without Anna, which tells me she is too young and not ready. Of course Miss Alli is ready to conquer the world, so she was a bit unhappy at the thought of not going for a long walk to the store.
Alli doesn't yet appreciate the loveliness of a good book. She will soon, as her reading is improving so much!
So, I suggested to them that it might be fun to wash the cars. The looks were amazing! They spoke a 1,000 words.... "Mother Dear, you can't be serious!" (of course this is what I read through their angelic little eyes). :)
She started having fun with the hose, and before I knew it, Alli was all excited about joining in...
and Finally Anna finished her book and she joined too. :)
But she didn't want her picture on the blog. It was a pretty picture... with a nice smile..... but alas, I will be respectful and not post it. :/
