The Dugway library has a summer reading program, like many libraries do. I signed Morgan up for it. We pledged to read at least 15 minutes a day. Each week we will take our little reading chart into the library, where they will record our progress and give out prizes.
Last week they had a kick-off party. We took Morgan over there for the games and fun. I was surprised at how many people were there, since I hardly ever see anyone in the library besides the workers.
First off, Morgan played this parachute game with the balls. You were supposed to try to keep the balls from going down the middle hole, but most of the little kids had no idea that that was their aim. They just tugged the parachute up and down and had fun watching the balls fly.
They also did a water balloon toss. Morgan wasn't too great at catching or throwing the balloons, and many a water balloon didn't get past the first throw.
There was also a little bowling game that Morgan did. He was awarded a sucker for his efforts.
The library provided ice cream sundaes for all the kids. There were all kinds of toppings and syrups and whipped cream, but Morgan just wanted plain vanilla ice cream. What ever floats your boat!
