Caroline attended two birthday parties this past Saturday afternoon and evening. I always feel a tad sad for Katherine when this happens so as usual, I offered to do some fun things with just her. And as usual, Katherine asked for take out pizza and movie night. She’s a pretty easy date if you ask me.
Just this week, we finished reading the very last book in Beverly Cleary’s amazingly wonderful Ramona series. I thought this would be the perfect time to watch the Beezus and Ramona movie so we eagerly checked it out of the library and settled in for a relaxing evening. Katherine was enthralled from minute one. She laughed and smiled, often noticing how scenes were similar and different from the books.
