"Here is a promise, and a fact: you will never, in your life, ever have to deal with anything more than the next minute. However much it feels like you are approaching an event – an exam, a conversation a decision, a kiss – where , if you screw it up, the entire future will just burn to hell in front of you and you will end: you are not.

We take our library trips very seriously around here. My favorite questions to the librarians yesterday, "Excuse me, where are the chapter books?" and "Excuse me, can you please help me find a nonfiction book?"
In the end we picked up one chapter book for our first grade level reader to "read," two nonfiction books on pterodactyls, and a nonfiction book about weather.
