On The Map

My project for this past summer was to build a
Little Free Library.
With the help of our son, Todd,
Tom and I have one in our front yard.

Now, we are officially on the MAP!
It's the first one in Redmond!!

We also received an award!
Library of Distinction
Click on this web site.
(you'll have to scroll down a bit)
The certificate hangs in our living room.

But the real pleasure,
has been all the people we have met. 
I put in a note pad, for anyone to leave a comment.

Here are a few notes that have been left.
I appreciate all the kind words but I have two favorite notes.

The top right, was written by a mother for her daughter.
"I like to read books.Thank you."
The little girl signed her own  name, Natalie.

The other is the one in the middle, bottom.
It says,
"I found this on a late night walk when I was really frustrated w/ work.
This really made my day. Thanks A TON  for making this a nice part of the community."

This has been such a joy and blessing for us.
Recommend it!
