My Day Off


Today Maggie went to the zoo with Grandma. She spent nearly an hour last night telling me all of the animals she was going to see. Giraffe, Lion King, shark, dinosaur, baby elephant, and mo-key (monkey) were all on the list. Hopefully she'll get to see at least some of those things. Since last I checked, Hogle Zoo didn't have a dinosaur or a shark. And I'm not sure if their lion is a king or not.

So, while she's out, I feel like I'm having a vacation as well. I took the boys to the library--it was the first time I've gone there since they were born. I try and steer clear of taking my children to places where you're supposed to be quiet. Church is hard enough. But I checked out 3 books and put a hold on another one. Can't wait.

Glad you had a great day! Maggie was seriously an angel the entire day. Grandma should definitely take the kids more often because they all seem to behave best for her.

I want to know what books you got!

Tiff, most of the books I wanted had been checked out already. So I'm actually rereading two books I read long long ago "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" (in preparation for the new movie), "The view From the Cherry Tree" (because the only thing I remember about it was that I checked it out of the elementary school library in 4th grade because it was the cool thing to do--the dog's name was S.O.B. and we all thought we were so bad) and then I also checked out another one I think it's called "The Willoughbys" or something like that. I don't have it here right now. I put a hold on "My Life in FRance."
