Another Cool Library

Today I visited another library at an elementary school in another school district nearby. I just loved it there! The librarian there was just so cool! She really makes the library fun. I decided that when I am a librarian some day, I want to be like her. She has her students excited about reading. When the kids came in and she sat them down to do her lesson, she asked them what they had been reading. The kid's hands were flying up everywhere. They all wanted to share what they had read recently. She had all kinds of things for kids to do in the library. They all seemed happy to be there.
She also does really fun activities such as a pumpkin decorating contest. They need to decorate the pumpkin like a character of a book. In the spring she has a storytelling festival. I already volunteered to help with it. It'll be in March. I'm already looking forward to it!
I will definitely be coming back to this library to do other things. She has already invited me to come back and do some hands-on projects. I need to complete 25 hours by December 1st. This will help a lot!

Mmmmm-Lecker!

Jamie and I went to the Rheinblick German Restaurant last night. Very busy and very yummy! We loved every bite. I made sure to order something with the red cabbage on the side because I love red cabbage. My mother makes it...but since it is not a favorite of my husband's, I don't get it often. I don't remember the name of what else I ate, but it was delicious. Jamie ordered the wiener schnitzel. He gave me a bite and I just may have to order that next time. It was a nice evening and we were able to walk to the restaurant because it is not far at all from our home. Good exercise too.
I wish I had a picture to present here...but it was dark and my camera flash does not work.
