Mollie had her first violin lesson today, and I cried. I have known her teacher since before she was born, and watched her grow up playing the violin. I was just overcome with emotion. Probably similar to starting your child kindergarten. It was precious and heart warming but overwhelming in a way.
Now, we have violin music playing in the background and in a few weeks the music will be in the foreground. Exciting times, I tell ya. Blessings.

Whoa Nellie!! Mollie had a minor melt down last week because she could not write an 8 in the way the book demonstrated. She generally writes 2 circles stacked on top of each other but was having difficulty writing it otherwise. Instead of making it a huge issue any second longer, I allowed her to trace the 8's I wrote. I'm sure she'll get the hang of it with a little more practice. What I want to guard against is her hating school and not giving her best effort. She continues to like school and makes a good effort to do her work generally. Of course, we all need pep talks now and then. Blessings.
