Book Time

One of Grace's favorite things to do is to sit in her green chair and look at her books. Here, Grace is enjoying looking at one of the many beautiful scrapbooks that Maddy has made especially for Grace. Grace amazes us with her ability to remember details including people, places, and events. Maddy made the scrapbook (seen here) for Grace that tells all about her trip to Vermont last month while Bob and I were in Florida. Grace received the scrapbook in Maddy's package this past week and much to our surprise Grace had remembered every detail of the trip! She told us about every one of the pictures. Grace even remembered a little girl's name that she had met only one time at a playgroup while she was in Middlebury. We are very happy that Grace has such a strong love of books at such a young age ~ she has learned so much from them.

Books, books, books and more books!

I am delighted that you are enjoying the scrapbook that I made for you. I just knew that we needed to capture and remember our visit. Poppy and I are still talking about it, Grace! There is nothing like the experience of books. They take to to any place you would like to go. You are curious about our world because of all the outstanding book time you have. Guess what, we have more books for you. I even have a number of BIG books. I think that you will love to see print in another form. I am planning a book project when you come to visit! I'll try to keep it a surprise.

I love, love, love this picture of you sitting in your green chair reading.
All Nice Things as you enjoy the story of your life!
A joy shared is a joy doubled!
Love, Your Maddy XO

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
