Warning: the following blog post is a shameless plug for our Peeps diorama currently on display at the Bainbridge Public Library, where you
must can go immediately to read great books cast a vote for the Kid and Hubs’ diorama in the library’s Peeps diorama contest.
Yes, another creative project! This one totally optional, but suggested by yours truly who then
honey-badgered nicely nudged the Kid and Hubs to make something cool.
It is true at one point the following was heard in the house: “But, Mom, when are you going to do something?! You haven’t done anything on the diorama!!”
I’m the idea person. I bought the Peeps…
And they did a great job, see? Notice the painted marshmallow peach trees with real fern leaves?
Have you read this book, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon? It’s great and made me cry. When’s the last time a kid’s book made you cry (in a good way)? Old Yeller?
So, go to the library and check out Where the Mountain Meets the Moon. And while you’re there, vote for Where the Mountain Meets the Peeps!
Although to be honest, it is true that the kid is not actually holding her breath to win. Why? Well, we’re guessing that the library’s prize will be….a book. Something made of paper and ink and relating in no way to electronics. *yawn* (this is the Kid’s yawn, not mine!)
But I say she should get her paper cuts while she can, before everything is tapping and clicking and dragging, right?
Am I the only one reading books the old-fashioned way?
