In the fall of 2006, Katherine was a senior in high school, and she had the role of Madame Forestier in the fall play The Necklace by Guy de Maupassant. She played a wealthy woman who lends a necklace to Mathilde Loisel. Mathilde loses the necklace and she and her husband go into great debt replacing what they thought were authentic jewels. Years later, at the end of the play, Mathilde finds out that the necklace was costume jewelry and their poverty could have been avoided.
The interesting thing is that Heidi played the role of Madame Forestier's daughter in the play. She was a cute little 7th grader (the one in the blue dress with the pink bow in her hair).
All these years later, Heidi married her mother's brother. I guess that would make him Heidi's uncle. But that was just make believe.
