Starting June off in a big way!

Today was a big day in our library-loving household, a sort of 'double-whammy', if you will.

Not only was today the start of the annual summer reading program, it will also go down in history as the day Dale got his first all-his-very-own library  card:

What a treat and a privilege to have Mimi issue his card and check out his first 3 books!

And whaddya know.... there is Dale's name all official and in print on his receipt!

The Summer Reading Program theme this year is "It's a Zoo in Here!", complete with animals everywhere, themed posters, a display of zoo books, and even a library zoo of stuffed animals among the books (you can see the 'zoo' behind the boys, below).
This year Alan gets to participate too, in the "Read to Me" program.  Great timing, since he really has been getting into books lately.  There was a time I wondered if he would ever be content to sit in my lap and read a book, but praise the Lord, we've made it!  His current favorite is Green Eggs and Ham, and we've gotten to the point he can recite a lot of it while I read.  

And speaking of ham.... he may not be green, but do you think you can guess who my little Ham is?

How fun! It looks like you've got a GREAT library. Not so much here. But we still go!!!

yeah Dale!!!! Your very own library card. You are really growing too fast.
As for the ham....who would have guessed! Good enough to eat with green eggs.

Love to all!

We do the summer reading program each year, too. How exciting that Dale got his own library card!
