How cool is Nancy Drew? I didn't realize how much I loved her until the other day. Here's what happened: I was in my baby sister, Elizabeth's, room at Mom and Dad's changing into my swimsuit. You know the amount of hopping, shimmying, and writhing invloved in getting into a swimsuit, right? (If you don't I HATE YOU!) Anyway, during said hopping, etc. I hopped over in front of Biz's bookcase and noticed she had her collection of Nancy Drew Mystery Stories there, along with MY collection of the Nancy Drew files (who told you you could borrow those, missy?). As I was pausing to catch my breath after finally wedging myself into my swimsuit (or sausage casing, you decide) I thought maybe the kiddos would like to read Nancy. This summer we've read Ramona, Harry, and a few others so adding Nancy seemed like a good idea.
Now we're reading book #1 The Secret of the Old Clock. It's really good and the kids enjoy it. And I am not too proud to admit that I wish I was Nancy Drew! She's so pretty and nice and smart (not fishing here). She has a blue convertible, for crying out loud! And she spends her days driving around solving mysteries. UGH, now I can't decide if I love her or hate her! Oh, alright, I love her. SIGH.
