Another big step

on the road to independence.

Saturday I took Janea to the library and she got her own library card!*

She filled out all the paperwork herself and got the card and so off we went to find books.

Janea has been reading the Series of Unfortunate Events books by Lemony Snicket and she has been waiting for ever for book 11...which hasn't been returned to the school library. Well she got books 11 and 12 of the series and a Dear America book...

We haven't seen much of her for the rest of the weekend as she has been engrossed in her books. She finished book 11 Sunday and is about half way through book 12!

She's such a good reader and I am glad to be able to foster this side of her...

* yes I know that young children can get library cards sooner than at 9 but in our family you have to prove you are careful with books before you are allowed the responsibility of checking them out in your own name! You also become resposible for keeping track of due dates, and paying any fines with your own money...
