I just locked up the library–there are a few cake crumbs on the counter, a scattering of colored pencils and markers. Today we created towns–towns that were underwater, on the moon, beside a river, in a place called Jupiter, but I do not think it was actually on Jupiter (but wherever it is, hairdos there are just gorgeous).
We were rather laid back. The cake was vanilla with blue icing and a plethora of sprinkles–Vivienne bit down on one of those silver balls and loosened a baby tooth. “Is it bleeding?” No, it wasn’t bleeding.
Vivienne and Klark revived Fredbrick (their brick child) and Jeff (a log with magic marker features). There was a request for an ax for altering Jeff. I did not produce one.
Vivienne’s dad, Alex, showed us a video of the kids two years ago. It was nice to see Olivia do one of her gymnastic leaps, and to see the others small–and then there were the kids who have moved or outgrown the library. I sure have watched a lot of kids grow up–and I miss them all.
Another fun day at the FPL.
