he really isn't choking her, just helping her hold up her
This past Saturday, the kids had soccer games. Molly was getting some Grandpa love...and they were bonding. It was adorable. Uncle Tom played some soccer with Levi because he was getting antsy (Levi was getting antsy, that is). Tom, you are a great uncle. Dad, you are a wonderful Gpa...thanks for taking the time to come to the kids' games. The weather was amazing! I could totally live with 65 degree days. But no, here in Indiana, we get teased for a good part of Sept. and Oct. This week, we are back in the mid to high 80's, with some lovely swampy humidity. Sheesh! I am officially over summer.
In a way, it makes me feel a tad melancholy though. Closing the pool down, shifting Molly's summer clothes out, as well as some outfits that don't fit her that now go to Nora, realizing that my nearly 13-year old son has outgrown EVERY pair of pants and shoes he owns (if anyone out there needs some regular size 12 boy pants, I've got some for ya)...man, it makes me all nostalgic. And Molly? Seems like she was just a nice thought, a wiggly womb occupant. And now, she is a bright, beautiful little sweetie, an amazing addition to our not so small family. She is so vocal..wish you all had the chance to see her in person, she is a doll baby! Her eyes talk to you and she is making such cute noises. Love that chicklet.
Anyhow, don't know what got me off on that tangent...nostalgia. Get used to it folks, it's Laurie's time of year, lots of sap on this blog from here on out!
otherwise, not much else going on...kids doing well with their school work, working on the upstairs porch (which is really going to be something, from what David tells me), trying to keep this thing afloat and hanging on in there. Hope all of you are doing the same. Choose JOY! We all have so much to be thankful for! Hug your kids. Hug your spouse, tell them how rockworthy they are! Hug a friend or family member (Mom, Beck, I would hug you right now if I could)...Thank the Lord for all He has done for you...
Sorry for the rambly entry, as usual. It's late!! Peace out, Laurie...
