Family Togetherness
27 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Ingalls family has grown. Four children are crowded in the loft while Grace gets a whole bet to herself. James and Albert fight over everything. But when James breaks Albert's razor, than steals a new razor from the Mercantile to cover up what he did he gets into a lot of trouble. Albert is mad, think James isn't in trouble. James runs away.

Because Pa is out of town, Albert goes after him. What follows is some brotherly togetherness that teaches both Albert and James a thing or two about family. This is just an old fashioned, sweet story that doesn't really add to the show. When Caroline and Charles decide to build on, the answer from the brothers is surprising!

Though I'm not a huge fan of James and Cassandra, this was a pretty sweet show that teaches something about what is truly important.
