I challenge you to look at this picture without smiling!!!!!
We had a fantastic cookie countdown party tonight hosted by our library as the culmination of summer reading. We danced the Virginia reel, ate tons of cookies and found out we beat last summer's number of books read! 12,551 books (I think)! Ella, especially, was SO excited!
We also clocked 4 more hours and one picnic more at Mint Springs today. I am not ready for that place to close! Hannah snoozed on the beach, everyone swam, dove and played on the sand, and Joshua caught a couple fish AND unhooked them. I think that was a first.
