Beyond Molasses Creek by Nicole Seitz


Ally Green has traveled the world as a flight attendant, but the death of her father call her back home and she thinks she might stay. On the other side of the world a young woman in India, armed with a mysterious sketch book, is looking for the truth about her life and where she came from. Both of these women must confront their past in order to live in the present and face the future.

Beyond Molasses Creek by Nicole Seitz takes these two seemingly far apart stories and weaves them beautifully together. While it seems a bit of stretch sometimes both of these women are ultimately looking for the same thing. They want to be freed from their past. They want to find something to believe in and they need to find a friend to lean on through it all.

I really enjoyed reading this book.  While the story seemed a bit farfetched at times for me, it was wonderfully written. I think there are many woman like Ally Green out there who are trying to hide from their past by keeping busy. In the end, you are only hiding from the truth. I did feel a little unsatisfied with the ending though. I feel like there were some lose ends that could have been tied up a little bit neater. But, I still enjoyed reading Beyond Molasses Creek.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
