Trains at the Library

We really lucked out when we took the kids to the Broomfield library the other day. When we arrived there was a performance going on in the auditorium. Since we'd missed the beginning, they let us in free to see "Math in Motion". It was a dance group of teen girls that did dances and skits that explained math concepts. Our kids really enjoyed it.

Then we found out there was also a model train display temporarily on exhibit in the kids' section of the library. It had buttons that made things move and whistles blow. There were even scale size Lightning McQueen and Mater vehicles on the streets. Kevin and Shane were ecstatic.

We borrowed several books while we were there. All the kids are participating in the Pizza Hut Book It! program again this year. Danya and Gloria are reading so much faster than I expected them to. We set their October goal at 50 pages a week. They finished so fast, that we're increasing their November goal to 100 pages per week. Brianna is doing really well, too. All the kids already earned their first month's free pizza certificates. We're really proud of them.
