We just got back from the Red Balloon Bookstore. We waited in line for about an hour, oddly I was one of the first to get to the counter. Woo!
Those who pre-ordered had a longer line, so I’m lucky I didn’t! Odd…
Of course, Hannah’s upstairs with it right now! She, Max & Lucas dressed up in skirts of mine pinned around their necks like capes. It’s good sometimes to have a tall mom who prefers A-line black skirts… And all this time I thought that dressing like a Mennonite didn’t have fringe benefits!
So I’m off to bed, Hannah’s off to Hogwarts, and Max has been asleep just about from the moment he hit the front door. Tomorrow I’ll claim the book for a bit so I can catch up to Hannah (and I’ll spend most of the morning avoiding her or she’ll tell me EVERYTHING she’s learned tonight. I’ll be surprised if she doesn’t wake me up at 3:00 with some vital piece of information!)
Thanks so much, Catherine, for inviting us along on a singular night!
