Some Fun Times

Okay, so it is so hot here. I know I will get zero sympathy from those of you who live in the South or out West, but it seriously is too hot here. Today it was over 100 degrees, what is this? God so did not create me for hot weather! I tell Eric that all the time, but some how in February every year I still find myself begging the good Lord up above for summer. Then it comes and now I don't like it. This gross, vicious cycle, will it ever end...now on to the good stuff....

Yesterday was Molly's first day in music class. We signed up for a class through the rec. department here, it's called Musicgarten, or something like that. Molly loves to sing and dance, so we thought what a great opportunity for her to show off her mad skills. I actually was a little worried because last fall we went for story time at the library, and my child was that kid. You know, the one other parents roll their eyes at, scoff at, and some actually told me they were sorry. See, Molly liked to me animated during the story, sit in other mommy's laps, go through random purses and diaper bags, you get the picture. So when this class rolled around I knew she would love the music, but I just was a little unsure of her sitting still ability. Well, she just sat there yesterday, so amazed at the music and the instruments. All the other kids in there were super calm, so I think she played off of them a little, and the teacher knew Molly's name which I think Molly thought was really cool. We had fun, and by the end she was participating and having a good old time. The teacher told me that she could tell that Molly was really into it. I am not sure how, she looked dazed half the time, but I will take it. The only "bad" thing about this class is that it is only 5 weeks long. I wish it lasted all summer, especially now that we burn alive when we walk outside.

Also last night Miss Molly rode her bike. Like officially pedaled and everything. I was so happy, and so was her dad. She still has a very short attention span on the bike, but at least she pedaled a couple of times. Then she looks at us and says, "all done, all done, all done!" She pretty much says it the whole time she is getting off the bike. Then she would get back on and go some more. Then Mommy and Daddy could no longer take the heat, and we said "all done, all done, all done!"

OH wow! That music class sounds like a lot of fun. I wonder if we have something like that around here. I am the mommy that has that kid that will not let go of my leg so she needs some major socializing! And YAY for Molly riding her bike!

Wonderful that the music class kept her attention. Hope it cools down a bit for you so it's a little more bearable !

Ha! Lily used to be that way when I would be waiting at dance for the girl's classes to be over....no one could leave their purse laying around or she'd be sure to get into it and the girls would leave water bottles around and she'd try to get them. LOL!

It is so hot here too! We are staying inside alot!

You know, I could so see Kyndra being like Molly at the library-going thru everyone's things! lol The music class sounds like a lot of fun. Kyndra loves music too. That's pretty exciting that Molly pedaled by herself! That's big stuff!!

What a beautiful family!

My family and I are doing missions in Brazil and the heat can be pretty overwhelming sometimes, I do enjoy hot weather but some days are really terrible!

Your daughter looks so cute!

Kate, you had me LOL at the beginning of this post! I am so the same way about the heat. Here in CA where I live the weather is most always beautiful. We've been waiting for it to get warm, and nothing, but after reading your post I guess I should be grateful for it not being hot yet.

So glad that things went well at Molly's music class. I think a lot of the attention span thing comes with time. She's still so young. You'll actually be amazed at how much she'll change even by this time next year. In the meantime, try to enjoy this moment, before she starts talking back to you like my Alyssa does, LOL!
