mothers day and stuff

i had a lovely mother's day weekend
molly sang in our church service on mother's day and did so well
she is not afraid of a crowd and she loves singing in a real microphone

she "opened" the service with Jesus Loves Me
and then we all sang along
when we got in the car she said, "mom, i like singing on stage!"
i hope she never looses her braveness!

here are a couple mothers day poems in molly's own words...
(love them)

we went to the children's theater to see
go dog go!
it was cute

 molly really loves going to plays and musicals and in fact this summer she will go to a week long drama camp there
i'm really excited about it, i think she will love it!

this weekend we went to see the lion king and it was so incredible!!
we had front row seats and it was just amazing!!

and here is the random cat who visits us each day and lets molly pet her all over! 
she's so sweet!
she would come in if we let her, but we are all allergic!
the school year is winding down and i'm counting the days
molly is already out of school and next week we will head to dollywood for the start of summer!

 we have a beautiful pick your own strawberry patch near us
and the strawberries are so sweet and yummy!
we enjoyed picking a bucket full earlier this month

strawberries are my favorite fruit!

molly's first talent show!

molly's first talent show

molly sang in her first talent show tonight at our church
i wasn't sure she'd do it, but when i asked her a couple weeks ago if she wanted to sing she said yes
well, you never know about a 4 year old...
but i did know that she loves to "perform"
 so, sure enough she got up there with a real microphone and sang every verse of a medley she learned in school
and did so good!
 i thought she may get scared when she saw the crowd of people, but she loved it!
i think we have a true performer on our hands!
she actually sang the whole thing twice because there was a microphone issue and she still didn't want to get off the stage after the second time!  she was so funny!
i'll post the video soon so you can see it for yourself!

happy molly day!

this week was our 3 year gotcha day on may 3!  
can't believe she was ever as little as the picture she is holding here, but that was the first picture i ever saw of her sweet face! 
she's grown so much in 3 years!
 she's had more questions this year about adoption and china
she's trying to figure it all out as best she can
and she's confident and sure of herself as she retells the story
 my prayer is that she has the language needed to share the details of her story as she gets older and kids begin to ask her
i also pray that her confidence and strength she has within our family remain constant

 i'm very thankful she introduced me to motherhood!
happy gotcha day!

molly's school stuff

molly's had a great year at school this year!
i went to a chapel service this week where she was awarded a "terrific ticket"
she was so proud and of course i was too
 here she is with her friend micah and her teacher, mrs. leebrick

i'm certainly counting on her good behavior and love for school to stay with her for 13 more years (at least)!
