This year school started the same day as Molly's birthday. Molly was thrilled. Really, she was. She loves school and was excited to think about starting again on her birthday. We had cake for her birthday the day before with Russ' family since we were all together for Labor Day. She wanted a Doctor Who cake. She did get one. Wasn't a great one, but she got one. Several things kept going wrong in attempting to make her cake, so it ended up being a picture of the TARDIS on her cake. With the extra cake from the previous 3 attempts at making cake (like I said, several things went wrong), I made cake balls shaped like Daleks. Had I had more time, they would have looked better. They tasted pretty good though. At any rate, I'm not posting pictures. Just don't feel like it. Molly was happy with her cake, at least. The day after her birthday we let Molly take one friend and went to the dollar theater and saw Madagascar 3. It also happened to be the day the city does a car show and free ice cream cones so we went a little early and got ice cream. Everyone had fun and we thought the movie was cute.
Anyway, back to the first day of school. Jimmy started the 8th grade. He's nearly as tall as I am (which isn't saying much), but I'm sure he will easily pass me up before the year's end. Someone had taken my camera and changed the settings on it, so his picture here isn't great. He wouldn't really let me take one once I fixed the settings.
