What a mix of highs and lows. And what a day overall.
Katherine is finally sleeping peacefully in her bed. She has turned 9, had friends over, blown up balloons, eaten cake, opened presents, laughed and giggled and played.
Unfortunately, (most of) her friends she invited to sleep over are in the den watching Ella Enchanted. I had just dozed off as the girls finished watching a movie when Rebecca came in saying one of the girls was homesick and Katherine was crying. The friend went home and Katherine moved to her own bed to collect herself. The rest of the girls weren't sleepy yet. So here we are.
It's nearly 2 a.m. and it's time for shut eye. Goodnight.
