Music lesson

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.

The 8's

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.

Clean sheets

I washed,y sheets today as well as the girls. It's always so nice to get in a freshly made bed. One of the niceties of life. Simple pleasures are sometimes best. Blessings.
