Today the Front Porch Library flowed seamlessly out of Klarkfest. Klark, who lives next door to the library was celebrating his eighth birthday, big-time. His home school group gathered along with parents, siblings, dogs. Many stuck around for library.
Our main activity was baking sugar cookies–that required dough rolling, and cookie cutter management (geometry is involved–how do you fit those stars together to get the most mileage out of each roll-out).
Then the wild decorating began. It is safe to say our sprinkle supply has been knocked down to about zero.
There were also Twister competitions in the living room, and climbing of the ligustrum hedge–our very local jungle.
Somehow all shoes and socks ended up in the living room, all the kids in the yard. My final announcement was, “Feet and shoes, find each other. The library is locking up for the night!”
I think there is one lonely sock left in the living room. Maybe next week someone will claim it. Or not.
We have a fine collection of stray socks at the FPL. Another fine, crazy day at the FPL.
