The Lost Book

We enjoy going to our local library and taking books home to read. In Spring, Sage took out the book Dora’s Starry Christmas (she’s quite the Dora fan!)

And we lost it.

We renewed it to give us some more time to find it.

We searched high and low, but couldn’t find it anywhere.

So on June 10th, I paid for the book. $5.50.

The librarian told me that if we found the book in two months, then we could return it to the library and get our money back.

And I joked that we’d most likely find it on August 11th: the day after the deadline.

Well, wouldn’t you know it? We had water in our basement yesterday, so last night, Cameron was moving furniture out of the spare room to lift up the carpeting, when Sage said:

“It’s the Dora book!”

It had slipped behind the bed in the spare bedroom, behind the headboard. And when did she find it?

August 11th.

Of course.

That is hilarious Leigh! Molly lost a school library book too. We paid for it. Moved a piece of furniture later and found it! LOL
