Summer With Molly

It's been a long, long summer. Molly's increasing energy and demands have left little time to read or relax, but her schedule has insured every day is fully realized--up at 6, two naps, asleep by 9, and moving, moving, moving all the time.

A return to work will be a relief.

I'm planning on commuting home on my bike. I rode the ten-mile route today in about an hour. I figured I would get my exercise in and help save the planet in my own little way by parking the Bug and pushing pedals to get home. My weight loss has held steady all summer at about 45 pounds because, hey, summer's for grilling and imbibing, right? I plan a return to a strict diet with school's beginning. 220 by this Christmas and I get a reward!

First, Molly is as cute as ever! Her development is truly amazing. Great job y'all!



I'm however now permanently in here in northern Virginia... just a stone's throw from our nation's capitol. Ok, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration. It's more like a hour ride on the beltway. SO, if y'all get out this way, gimme a yell.



...sorry Nana...

It is amazing to watch them grow and learn. sometimes there is nothing better than to watch a young child learn to interact with their surroundings and see the expression on their face. She is absolutely beautiful guys.

on a side note bryan, i think that i am finding the weight you lost. if you want it back please feel free to drop me a line. 172 and counting.

Congratulation for your first post, Busta!! And I second your first comment-"GREAT JOB"-Denise & Bryan!! Molly Elizabeth's growth & developmental advance stagging are a great credit to you both!! Celebrate your early achievements of "first time parenting" with overcoming critical birthing moments!!!
Molly is a beautiful princess with high scoring/excellent social skills & much energy. The photos are excellent with capturing the "true Molly-Poppa's sweet girl"!!
May 2005-2006 be your best teaching year. Remember you have your private Biology & English student beside you, Bryan!! I do like the photo of Molly among the books-imitating her Dad. An excellent missionary physician maybe sitting beside you? Teach Molly much Biology-once your favorite subject!!
We are glad to hear that the ten mile bike route timing is achieveable.
