American Girl Christmas
Kit and Molly joined our family Christmas this year and oh, girl, have they been loved! Maddie and Kate have been busy this weekend (we've been quarantined since Izzy was sick) writing newspaper articles and stories...just like Kit. We have also been reading the girls' adventures and learning about the Great Depression, the context of Kit's life. This has been an interesting way to teach our kids about economics and to give them some sense of what is happening with our current economic status. Now they have another "authority" on the subject encouraging frugality and sacrifice with one's possessions, space and money. Who knew a perfectly marketed toy could spark such family conversation?
