Anyway, Isaac is at the age where he can really appreciate a trip to this library. It is a 45-minute drive for us ... but worth every second. He runs through the library doors with joyful anticipation of what awaits him inside ... people, books, toys, flowers (their gardens are beautiful), elevators (a real treat), movies, puzzles, and especially kids! This is a real social event for him.
Our most recent trip was particularly delightful as Isaac met and enjoyed two sweet little girls (and I got to have a bit of adult conversation). They played toys, picked flowers together, watched bugs, chased one another around the courtyard, and simply had a great time getting to know one another. It was such a joy to watch. With their Mom's permission, I give you the following sweet images:
We may not remember the names of these sweet little girls, and we may or may not see them there again. But the beauty of the library is that there are always old friends to greet us ... always something to do or share together ... always fun things to borrow ... and always new friends to meet. You simply can't go wrong there.
How do you feel about your local library?
