Yay, Camden!

This summer, Camden participated in the Summer Reading Program at our local library. For the months of June and July, we had to keep track of the number of hours that we read to him, and for each hour read, he got a raffle ticket. The library had all kinds of little boxes lined up, with a picture of a prize on each. All the kids that participated could put their tickets in which ever box (or boxes) they chose. Camden set his sights on a Spiderman pillow at the very beginning, and put his tickets (23 in all!) toward that. The drawing was yesterday afternoon, so the boys and I headed off to the library, and packed ourselves in like sardines, with all the other kiddos and parents. I was a little worried as to how Camden might react if he didn't win, because I didn't think he really understood when I explained to him that someone else might very well get the pillow. This, coupled with the fact that I peeked into the box holding all the tickets, and it was FULL. Anyway, as you can see by the picture, my sweet little Camden won! He was so darn cute when they called his name, and he had to make his way through the sea of kids to go and claim his prize. Camden loves books, and loves the library. I'm really happy that books are a part of his everyday life, and I hope it stays that way.

Could he look any prouder??? I'm sorry his head slid off the pillow a couple times during the night, but hopefully he has that situation under control. See you soon!
