Sarah got her first library card today!
She was certain she needed to dress “fancy” for such an important occasion.
She wrote her name on the application by herself.
Then, she was finally free to explore.
She found a table with puzzles, which made her even more excited about being at the library. She normally works on 100-piece puzzles, but most of these were “baby puzzles,” as she called them, so she made her own challenge – putting the puzzle together on the table without anything to use as a guide.
Three books caught her eye, but she could only leave with two on the first day. Decisions, decisions!
Before we left, she took her application to the front desk and got to hold her library card. They sent it to the main branch to print her name on it, and she will receive it in the mail in the next week or so. A library card and she gets her own mail?! Even better!
I have a feeling we will be spending quite a bit of time at the library, and that makes me ever-so-happy and makes my blessing-filled heart stretch its capacity even more. This particular library is the library I went to as a kid, and it is so satisfying to see my daughter enjoying it all these years later.
With her final two choices in hand, she was off to the car babbling on about the library and the books and the puzzles and the nice librarian and getting more books and seeing more things and … *SIGH* My sweet Sarah has found the Imagination Mother Ship, and it is calling her home. I have a feeling soon my car will be able to go there on auto-pilot.
Have fun, baby girl. As if your imagination needed any more fuel for its raging fire!
