Old Books

I've been on the hunt for old books. My grandsons were here this past weekend. While they were here their Dad said they each had to read for an hour. I gave one of them a Hardy Boys book which I thought he would enjoy. He didn't like it because it had no pictures. He still read it for the entire hour and after he was done he wanted to read the book his brother read.

I gave his younger brother an old book called Tel me Some Crosby Newell Bonsall. They both read the book from cover to cover. It is such a cute story. Now when we go to the thrift store they want to look at old books.

So I've been on the hunt for books for them to read. Of course I have them hooked on the thrift stores too. They like to go see what they can find. This weekend Jason found a mini skateboard ramp and board he had to have. He was so cute he had no money so I told him he would have to pull weeds for an hour to get the ramp. I want you to know he did a great job!

Next week I will show you some of the goodies we found at the thrift store. Right now I'm headed to the beauty shop to get my hair done then I'm off to the retreat. We have a four day retreat this weekend.

No girls Mark isn't going to stay home. He likes all of you to much to miss out on the fun. Of course he asked the doctor to write him a note so he doesn't have to do dishes. LOL :-)! Will see if he really rest or not. Any beats?
