POD: Visiting the Library

From Picture of the Day 2013 In a weird twist of fate I found myself heading to the library to pick up a real book today. So I brought the kids along to return one of their books and see if there were any books they might like to borrow.  The kids love visiting the library and […]

POD: Summer Reading

From Pictures of the Day 2012 Today Jacob wrote up his first book of the summer. I’m not sure if he needs to do the full write-up for the Library ready program, but since he’s been doing it all year at school, why stop just because school has.  Tomorrow he’ll finish it up with a picture, perhaps […]
