Well, I decided we had enough time and energy to walk up to the library tonight so I could get my items and temporarily stop the pressure from the library to work within its time limits ... so stressful, I tell ya! :)
I asked the kids if they wanted to go with me. Conor jumped at the chance, as did Annika once she realized Conor had received the OK to go in his PJs and she figured going to the library in her PJs, too, would be quite the treat. Easy!
We had lots of fun along the way discovering the silly things we can make our shadows do... and how turning at different angles can greatly alter a shadow. By turning one direction, we could make our legs reallllllly long. By turning sideways, we could lose most of our physical definition.
