Nora has had a pretty good spring break. Early in the week, her cousin Benjamin and aunt Lisa visited. We went to an amusement park and rode every inverted roller coaster in sight. We went to the National Whitewater center and rode the rapids, and took a thousand-foot zipline ride across the entire complex. We had a huge Easter feast.
But at her school the break extends to the Monday after Easter, and that might have been one day too long. My evidence? Behold:
No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. Nora decided to rearrange the kids’ entire book collection — by color. Here’s the second bookcase:
This has created some odd combinations and separations. The Harry Potter books, for example, are all over the place:
The other four are a little closer together at the bottom of the other bookcase. The Oz books are similarly randomly distributed.
Even the uniformly-pigmented Little House books were split across two shelves:
Don’t ask what Nora’s thinking was here. Let’s just call it “creative liberties.”
Both kids agree that this is an entirely reasonable organization system. “It’s just the place we put the books when we’re done reading them,” Jim said. I have to say, in some ways, he’s right. Most of my books are simply stacked up in no order whatsoever. At least this looks interesting — and at least these books were read.
