18 lbs.

David weighs 23 lbs. Matthew weighs 38 lbs.

The load of books we picked up at the library last week weighs 18 lbs.

We are something of a circus when we go to the library. The boys run from shelf to shelf pulling off books and making a pile. Then they run off and do it again. I try to get them to sit down and actually look at the books, but they figure they can do that at home. Gathering a mountain of glossy covered books is something you can only do at the library.

Then mommy has to shepherd 79 lbs. of boys and books out to the car. The silence that settles over our house when the boys finally do sit down to read their books is worth every  minute of it.

    Sounds about like us except Aiden does not help right now. Owen and I picked out no joke 25 books today. We do read them all and a lot.
