Ah, the power of literature

Today, Katie Brown got her own library card.
"Can I get my very own library card??" 
When you get that request in carpool line - you go with it. 
She was thrilled with the power and possibility of a lifetime of free learning, of all the world's literature opening up before her. Or perhaps the awesome plastic card to put in her wallet.
Whatever the motivation, it was exciting for this former librarian to witness.

Not her first...

From the backseat this morning:
"Mama, I can't wait to go to the Rodeo again." - Anna, Age 5
And to think I was 32 before I saw my first rodeo. I am truly broadening my daughters' experiences.
