first dictionary

first dictionary by lovelydesign

One of my very favourite things to do is to treasure hunt. For some reason, I always seem to find the best treasures when visiting small towns... why this is I am not quite sure.

This summer while on one of our summer trips around Vancouver Island, I found and collected up a basket full of the sweetest vintage children's books. When I picked out this vintage children's dictionary, I really thought that it would be more for me then my kids. But I came downstairs the other day and found Adelaide flipping through it and writing out the words, one by one.

I really love it that my kid is a nerd. I am hoping this affliction (or at least a little of it) will stay with her throughout her life.

My son is a nerd, and I hope it sticks. He LOVES reading, and I love that he does too.

I just made a post about vintage childrens books, great find.

I have been out all summer, I just saw you have a baby boy. He does have big bright eyes.

I thought the same thing once I was pregnant with my second, three boys later...you find your heart NEVER has a limit to it's capacity to love.

Wow! This is so strange! Were by chance in Sidney or Brentwood Bay? A while ago I donated that book to our Thrift Store that has shops there!
How funny!

And I don't even think that defines a nerd..... I love finds like that too (I found an old fashioned bed with rope woven through holes in frame to support the mattress today - SWEET)!
