The film is a must if you are going on a pioneer trek or if you have relatives who were pioneers. It was a bit teary. Littlest kitten and I have spent many a night reading some of these same pioneer stories and crying our eyes out. I felt pretty grateful as I hopped into my littlest kitten's big soft bed to squeeze her last night.
On the night that we played our practically starring role as 'extras,' I said to Nina that we weren't very good at being extras and we laughed because it was true. It was a challenge to follow instructions and blend in. (To see the whole saga scroll half way down until you see pioneer children.)
At the premier it was the same thing. We had a good laugh when I quietly pulled on my pioneer bonnet (which I made this weekend) for a family photo. I said again, "We aren't very good at being extras" and, "I still don't look good in a bonnet."
I think it's because with people that you love, life can be a celebration. Together we feel like stars.
