This weekend my mom and I took my daughters and niece to see the premiere of the new American Girl movie, Kit Kittredge. Wow! What a great wholesome and encouraging movie! It was a great surprise for the girls.
The next day we went to the American Girl Boutique & Bistro. Mom and I didn't quite know what we were getting into. We ended up having a wonderful lunch at the Bistro (some of the best food ever, really!), and the girls ended up with dolls to take home. I almost cried when I saw my youngest daughter take the doll and hug it close. (Yeah, I'm a little sentimental.)
I am so glad that we were able to get these dolls for the girls. I hope they will be a special reminder of family and of God's provision.
Unfortunately, the weekend ended with a realization that some "curb surfing" I had done with the van had actually damaged my front tire. My dad said we were lucky to have made it home without a blow!
It is so good to have a God that protects me even when I am unaware! I will be doing some tire shopping in the morning.
