A Girl of Many Talents...

So it's been a little chaotic around here lately, but through it all, Molly has found ways to keep herself occupied. Recently she has been very entertained with fitting herself into shoe boxes and bins, and the other day while in the kitchen I found her in the strainer.

Another one of her favorite pastimes these days is shoes. She's always getting into our shoes and putting them's pretty funny watching her trying to walk around in David's shoes. The other day I was able to catch her in mine. She truly is her mother's daughter. She's done pretty well with all the packing so far, but today when we were putting most of our shoes in a box, she decided she wasn't very happy about that. She wanted to get them all out and put them on.

This morning she was very interested in playing our little digital piano. She's getting pretty good at finding the buttons that get the nice beats going. She'll start dancing along and get excited and pound the keys. She gets pretty proud of herself. I'm hoping she stays this interested and will be willing to do piano lessons when the time comes.

And last of all, this afternoon we wanted a little break from all the packing and cleaning, so Grammy Isaacson took Molly and us to the little Farm Country area at Thanksgiving Point. Molly was very fascinated with the cows and the horses and the goats. She's learning the sounds of animals right now, so it was fun to actually be able to see some common ones in person and hear the sounds they make. She also rode a pony...and didn't freak out! I was pleasantly surprised that she did so well. Overall, it was a great day...our last fun outing before we leave Utah.

Cute pics! I am glad Molly is doing good with the packing. I am excited to take Aubrey to Farm Country - looks fun!

It's so fun to see the things Molly is into. Nathan is right behind her doing all the same things. It will be fun to see them playing together some time.
