Molly In Video

Molly Pitcher

For the past few weeks, Kylie has been reading her biography book on Molly Pitcher to get ready for her book report. This was a 2 part project. She had to write a summary and prepare a 3 minute oral report. She also had to dress up for the oral report. Here she is in the morning with her patriotic dress, bonnet, boots, and pitcher.

Just in case you don't know who Molly Pitcher was. . . Molly Pitcher was a Revolutionary War heroine that went on the battlefield and gave soldiers water from her pitcher. Her husband was on the same battlefield and when he suffered a fatal shot, Molly took over his cannon and helped her side defeat the British. (I had no idea who Molly Pitcher was before Kylie's report!) She was appointed a Sargent by General Washington because of her bravery on the battle field.

Here is our Molly Pitcher!

And here is her classroom. Do you recognize any famous people?

Busy Week

Kylie and I hosted her Brownie meeting on Monday. We completed the Hobbies Try-It by talking about hobbies, having a show and tell, and then a round robin of hobbies to try. The girls made Scrabble tile pendants for jewelry making, bookmarks for reading, posters, for drawing, and decorated cupcakes for cake decoration. I think they all had a great time. Here are a few pictures from the meeting when the girls became food artists and made this fruit rainbow with marshmallow clouds and a pot of banana gold at the end. This was in the middle of the meeting for their snack.

The Best Video

I believe that these are the words my mom would have written to her children many years ago and I hope that I am living these words with my own children right now!

Tasha's Craftiness

In my ward when I was growing up a super cute little family moved in. In that family there were three little, adorable girls (and 2 little boys, followed by another cutie girl later). I got to babysit these little girls a few times and now these cuties are grown up mommies with blogs! One of them is giving away some crafty cuteness! I want to win it, but I thought I would tell you about it too so you could have a chance of winning. Here is a link:


So CUTE!!!
