“Well, I’m back.”

It’s been five days since I blogged, according to Ted, so I figured I had better start up again. I have a lot to say…might split it into two entries. Anyway, let’s start at the beginning.
Last Sunday I preordered my copy of The Return of the King. Then on Monday, I went to school…I can’t remember anything happening there.
Tuesday…nope. Let’s skip to Thursday. After school, while my mom was teaching piano lessons, Audrey and I walked to Dairy Queen. Estel might have come too, but she was working for someone at the horse barn. Oh, yeah, and the lady said I could go with Megan sometime. That would be really neat!
Then, Thursday night, I went to our library to watch The Return of the King on a big screen with some friends. Other homeschoolers, Warrenkids friends, it was like a big reunion. Let’s see, Marcus, Sam, Andrew, Haydn, Josh, Rose, Jessica…the list goes on.
It was an incredible movie. You could get in for only a buck if you wore a costume, and because I am really trying to save money right now, I brought a cape, but of course I didn’t want to actually WEAR it. I ended up paying the full two dollars. :P
During the end of the movie, I cried, of course. How could you not.
After, the director of the library whom we all love so much had a raffle and gave out several books, posters, and bookmarks. Dad got “The Fiction of J.R.R. Tolkien,” a very interesting book.
Friday went all right. When I got home, my movie had come.

Later, we went to the library to say goodbye to the last of our librarians. If you remember from previous posts, they were leaving because they didn’t believe in what was being done to the library.
Mrs. Kimball and I hugged, and both of us started to cry a bit. It was terribly sad. I have realized that she is like an aunt, except ever closer. There was a photographer in the building for some reason, and he took pictures of us hugging and crying and asked our names. We gave them and Mrs. Kimball said we were some of the favorite visitors. I hope we get in the paper, so the board can see how we really feel about the library.

I think that was one of the saddest days of my life. I have been going to that library ever since we moved here! Ten years. Ten years! And then the new board comes along and just uproots everybody.
