Over the winter break we made a couple of trips to the library. The boys enjoy it and I can always use another stack of books to read. I was in the children's section on the computer when Reid came up with these two books. I don't know where he found them, but they did look rather interesting.
But at 4 am the next morning, Paul and I were awakened by some yelling. Upon investigation, it was Cort. Screaming over the ghost in his room. The face, trying to get him. He said it wasn't a dream, that it was real, and he was terrified.
I told him that newer houses don't have ghosts. Only very old houses. That worked for a night. Then again, two nights later, more crying at 4 am.
Meanwhile, Reid has ordered the entire 'Scariest Places on Earth' series from the library system. There are about eight other books.
I'm thinking Cort doesn't need to read these books when they come in. Reid will just have to keep them to himself!
Readers, what scared you as a child?
