And so my list for supplies sat useless on the table.
But, my list of summer reading was acted upon in the afternoon, and we now have 3 new additions to our home library:
The Phantom Tollbooth
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
I wasn't really sure which was more cost effective, dealing with the fines I have already--and will undoubtedly add to--at the library, or just buying the books. I'm not a Kindle person, I still want the feel of a book in my hand, and with the span of ages in my readers it just makes sense to have certain books around. I'm excited to read the Mixed-Up Files. It may spur a field trip to the Met, or at least an art museum. Which reminds me...I need to go work on that summer activities list.
