Start 'em young!

The Booker household held a garage sale yesterday, and it was the usual fun. whenever we have one, we usually get three or four nearby neighbors to join in and its like a big party.

What sticks with me about yesterday's sale is a very young girl —no more than four, certainly — walking around, looking very carefully at things. But she didn't pick anything up. You see, her hands were already occupied, and my face broke into a big grin when I saw what she was holding:

She was clutching that pencil and notebook as if they were very important to her. Not until posting this photo did I even notice that the notebook was open. Now I wish I'd talked with her about what was in it. Maybe next time.
