Today, Parker had a great idea. He asked Kaitlyn to buy movie tickets for him, Natalie and Becca. When Kaitlyn asked if she could go too, he decided to invite us all.
So we did it.
This was hardly a typical day in our family. I don’t think I’ve ever taken all the kids to a matinee. Then again, it’s been a very long time since we lived 3.5 miles from the dollar theater. We do evening movies as a couple or as a family once in a great while, but this was our first time to go without Perry. I tried to talk him into taking half the day off of work, but it just wasn’t happening.
Later that evening I made a double batch of The Common Room’s Bean and Cabbage Soup. See my big ladle? It came with my pots & pans, and matches them. It looks just like a tiny little saucepan, but of course no one would actually use a pan that small. That’s how I knew it had to be a ladle.
