Johnny and I visited our local library book sale. He picked out two books he wanted and three board books for his baby sister Dorothy. I gave him the change so he could pay the lock box for his selections. It was such a proud moment to see John pay for his purchase like a big boy at only 2 and half years old.
I discussed why we have to be quiet in the library. He was such a well behaved visitor.
Next we made a visit to Round Rock libraries toddler time story time. Ms. Andrea read the large group of attendees three books, sang songs, and was a delightful teacher.
Johnny is the son of April and Darren Bogus, and big brother to Dorothy. They reside in Round Rock Texas. His mom is a blogger at The Tattooed Type where she writes a family friendly blog. April loves visitors stop on by and tell her that Mom says hi! My library is on Facebook if you’d like give them a visit.
To reward Johnny for being so well behaved we ventured across the street to Round Rock cities splash pad.
I wanted to share our wonderful experience in hopes you can visit your cities library soon. Our family loves to read and enjoys sharing the love of books with everyone especially the grandkids.
Happy reading and adventuring,
Kathy aka Nana

Hello book lovers,
I wanted to share with you a book I read last week.
The Gravity of Birds by Tracy Guzeman, a novel that is full of intrigue and mystery.
Did you ever read a book that you couldn’t put down, here is one.
From 1963, for eight summers the two teenage sisters and their family summers at a lake house.
Both girls have crushes on a artist, Thomas Bayber an older man nearly 30 years old.
Natalie and Alice Kessler were so enamored with Thomas that they posed for a portrait.
Skip some 40 years ahead Thomas is now a famous artist and has a painting he wants to unveil to the public.
Several collectors are interested in acquiring this portrait but it will only be for sale when the girls are located. You will soon learn why this artist wants to locate the women so many decades later.
Learn how the painter and the girls lifes became intertwined.
This review is not doing this story justice, when you think you know the flow of the story it veers in another direction.
The author takes the reader back and forth from the seemingly idyllic summer days at the lake and then back to the present. With flashbacks perfectly time and smooth progression of the story, I found it a nice read.
