on turning six and loosing teeth

molly turns 6 years old on september 19th
hard. to. believe.
over the past month she has started kindergarten
piano
gymnastics
weekly bible study (bsf)
and lost 2 teeth
seriously, can she just stop!
 her favorite thing to read about, play with, watch you tube videos of, and talk about is 
dinosaurs
she's completely her own person!  i mean, when have i ever cared about a dinosaur?
 she still sleeps with me
but i have high hopes that she'll move into her room and sleep in her own bed one day
but then, sometimes i night when we're cuddled together i wonder why i'd ever want to stop this!
 she can be quite the drama queen at times
for example last night she started crying saying she didn't want to grow up
she only wanted turn 10 and then go backwards to be a baby again
i mean real tears and all

 she loves kindergarten, especially her teacher
she comes home singing and sharing all that she's learned that day
she is very eager to learn and do and please right now
i love this age!
 we love to sing loudly in the car
in the morning time on the way to school we listen to praise music
and in the afternoon we listen to frozen or other disney songs

 she's taken to piano nicely
i'm not sure where it will lead, but for now she is content to learn old mcdonald had a farm!
she also likes to "make up" her own songs on the piano
 she really loves gymnastics!
she's in the girls class with coach erin and they really have a great time!

 her teacher told me one of the greatest compliments ever this year...
she said molly, "changes the dynamic of the class"
i hope that is always how we can describe her character and actions
to change things for the better and greater good
she has the potential to be an amazing leader
i pray she continues to grow in Jesus each day to be the person she was meant to be!
 so, we are counting down to 6 years old
only 4 days left!
i may cry every day this week a little
 and look ahead with great expectation too
for what is in store can only be great and wonderful!

Labor Day Weekend Trip

molly and i had one last weekend trip of the summer
we went to holiday world in santa claus, indiana
i'd been wanting to try this small amusement park and this was the perfect weekend to try
 the little town was quaint and cute
with all of the 'christmas' themed stores!




 molly is doing so well in kindergarten...learning to read and write!
 hotel living is fun!
 holiday world is divided into different holiday sections...so you can go through christmas, july 4th, thanksgiving, and and halloween!  it's super family friends and molly really enjoyed all of the kid rides!










all in all it was a great weekend!

August 2014

we ended summer with a last swim in the pool with the cousins



 my big girl...growing up so fast!


 my mom started keeping these 2 cuties this year
their moms are both teachers so we're all on the same schedule which is so nice!
seriously...how cute are these baby boys???
jackson & jude


 a flock of turkeys appeared in our yard this month!
getting ready for thanksgiving i guess!

 molly has been wiggling her loose tooth frantically since we left the dentist a month ago
the dentist just mentioned that the tooth was beginning to get loose and she would loose it by christmas
clearly she didn't know molly's determination when told such things!
 we wiggled with a wash cloth, her tongue, dental floss,and  a tooth brush for 3 days and it finally came out on it's own one morning!



 i had 2 last furniture projects that i sold on craigslist
actually my nephew ended up with this cool red, white, and blue desk!

the lavender desk sold in 1 day
so girly!
 molly is still obsessed with dinosaurs!  
she plays with them non stop!

we're nearly 6 weeks into the school year and things are going smoothly.
molly has started piano once/week, gymnastics once/week, and we all (mom, molly, and me) go to bsf (bible study fellowship) together on monday nights.  this year we're studying the life of moses and i'm excited to watch molly learn and grow through bible study this year!
