Dreams Come True- at the Library

25 Feb

Random Fact: We went to the library today.  Everyone knows that libraries are magical places filled with wonderful things,  aka…books.  And we all love books. We used to take a laundry basket to carry all of our books in until all of our baskets broke. Now we just have a regular basket.  It’s fun to go to the library because a couple of the librarians groan when they see us walk in.

Another Random Fact: I love David McCullough. I’ve read 1776, John Adams, Truman, and Mornings on Horseback. I like the reliability of his facts and the interesting way he presents them.

So, I told you all that in order to tell you that I found a golden treasure today at the library. They got a new book-

The illustrated edition of 1776!  It is huge and comes with replicas of original documents, letters, and maps in pockets on the inside!   It costs about $60 and I can read it for free!  I ran to Caroline to tell her the amazing news and she gave me a funny look. Obviously not a history fanatic.

 

Needless to say, my day was made.

    That sounds great!! I have never read any of his books! I’ll keep a look-out! 🙂 Missed seeing you yesterday at church but it sure was nice to see the rest of your sweet family! **Although your mama and I talked for quite a bit…your dad was ready-to-go and it took us a while to realize that! LOL

      I would have loved to come- I love the new church! It was my last Sunday teaching Sunday School so I didn’t want to miss it.
