Last evening Bec and I headed to the movies to see Kit Kittredge: An American Girl. I can't say enough about this wonderful, fun movie that leaves you with a feeling of appreciation for people in your life.
It's a wonderfully heart-warming tale of a young 10yo girl in the 1930's depression era who has a dream to be a reporter...and she chases that dream. Life is far from easy for this family but family, friends and a positive outlook on life takes them far.
If you have a daughter that is ready for non-cartoon movies then I cannot recommend this movie enough! It was so neat to hear people talking to each other as we left the theatre, all saying what an uplifting movie it was and what a great feeling it left us with.
Another really neat thing that happened after this movie was that Rebecca and I went to the store and bought a book for her. She's kinda been a reader but not an avid reader. I'm hoping this helps to change things as I love to get lost in a book and I would love for her to find that too.
