Duck arrived yesterday! When he saw that she arrived in a box Henry said something like "guess Duck doesn't need a car seat" to Meg. Later in the day Henry, Hazel and Meg went to the library this time Henry wasn't in his usual rush and Hazel got to pick up several books. She seems to be into them lately. Frequently she'll hand one to us to read to her (for a just a page or two before she gives us another or gets bored). She even has a word for book that is slightly different than her bird word.

A recent favorite activity of Hazel's I've forgotten to mention is trying out shoes! She enjoys sitting down and pointing to or grabbing different shoes that she wants one (usually Meg) to put on her. She's very pleased when she tries one on. I wish this were so easy to do with Henry!

Last night's coin was pretty good to me.

76 small dollars and one half dollar had nothing.

4,960 quarters produced one proof quarter (2007S Utah), three Canadians and eight US nickels. The proof quarter is the 3rd rarest by mintage that I've found and is in pretty good shape! 2,002,812 were minted.

2,800 dimes yielded five silver Rosies (1951, 1954, 1956, 1956D, 1963D) and seven Canadians.

1,280 nickels rounded up one dateless Buffalo and seven Canadians (1 Ni).

5,350 pennies turned up forty Wheats, thirty-six Canadians, one US dime and one Euro 2¢. In this batch was a new modern Canadian for me, the 2011.

1911, 1916, 1924S, 1930, 1935, 1936, 1940, 1941(2), 1942(2), 1942D, 1944(3), 1944D, 1945(2), 1946, 1947(2), 1947D(2), 1948(3), 1948S, 1951D(2), 1953, 1953D, 1954, 1956D(3), 1957, 1957D(3), 1958D

Found: 4 pennies
