I took these wild children of mine to storytime at the library. They had cabin fever and storytime is free, so it seemed like a great solution. Best part for Alana is that it involved a craft, and coloring is her forte. It was one hour of fun, books, and impatiently crawling around the carpet in a public place. And it was free. Free!
Alana dutifully posed for a picture by the giant quilt thing that they made. It's quite a masterpiece.
