Teddy goes to the Library
When we arrived, Teddy found a book we borrowed last year that Ollie had remembered had a dinosaur skeleton on one of the pages, so we sat down and read it together, while little brother Toby cheerfully removed one book at a time from the Thomas the Tank Engine section and brought them to us. When Toby finally got bored and proceeded to full melt down, we gathered up the books Teddy had chosen, took them out and brought them home (with a stop en route at the bakery for Ollie's favourite cherry topped buns).
After we got home and the buns had been demolished by ravenous small boys, we read through some of our new books, with Toby and Teddy jumping excitedly around us as soon as the only book that caught his fancy today was finished. Then later, while Toby napped, we sat down and drew our pictures of Teddy at the Library. Finally we came back to the theme later with Matt reading some of the new books to the boys (and Teddy) at bed time.
I wonder where Teddy will decide to go with us next.
