Happy 11th Birthday Catherine!



My little girl is turning 11. Time for sushi, of course.

What's a dream day like for this kid? An evening dinner out to Tokio Sake for sushi followed by a trip to Barnes and Nobles to use up the $80 in gift cards she received from family and friends.

Other highlights of today: being selected to sub in for the A team for Scholastic Bowl tomorrow against Fox River Grove (Go Catherine!). I had a feeling she might get the bump up to the A team from the B team when one of the moms from another school we played (and beat) told me that my daughter was "on fire" when it came to scholastic bowl.

We had a small party at Clay Monet on Saturday which she enjoyed. It seemed the theme was to paint dragons, but Catherine chose a cat. I broke with tradition and brought Eli's cheesecake samplers for the treats. Cupcakes seemed too young and boring, and a cake was too much for 6 kids. The cheesecakes were very good.
