I heart...

We headed to Gator Beach today. We've been here before, but it's always fun to check out the alligators!
Blessing 291 - free and fun attractions! I heart Gator Beach.

Blessing 292 - Seeing my girls have fun with Pop. I heart Pop!

Blessing 293 - unexpectedly finding a funny picture. I heart funny pictures.

Blessing 294 - Posing little girls. I heart sassy little girl poses.

Blessing 295 - Time with our nephews/cousins. I heart Eli and Brodye.

Brodye jumped in our family picture. :)

Matt's sister, Amy, and her family - sweet, sweet.

Blessing 296 - seeing these cousins enjoy time together. I heart cousin bonding.

Blessing 297 - getting to celebrate Meme's birthday in person. I heart Meme.

Blessing 298 - Pumpkin cheesecake. I heart cheesecake.

Blessing 299 - sleeping children. I heart sleeping children.

Blessing 300 - laughs with Amy and Jacob. I heart Amy and Jacob.

Thanks for bearing with me on this "I heart..." post. Rereading this thing kind of annoyed me, but it didn't annoy me enough to retype it. It's probably not a good thing when you annoy yourself, is it?

281. What a blessing to have a new small group to get together with once a week. It's so great to get to know some new people!

282. What a blessing to have Julia doing so well at school. I couldn't help but take a picture of her discipline chart for September.

283. What a blessing to get to spend some 2 on 1 time with Audrey on Thursdays. Julia's at school, Matt's off work, and our younger child gets some special attention.

284. What a blessing to have a fully stocked dress up chest for the girls to play in. Those 2 certainly don't do without in the toy department. Thanks, family!

285. What a blessing to see the girls prance around in high heels. Love it!

286. What a blessing that their makeup rarely leaves stains.

287. What a blessing to be the mother of 2 perfectly imperfect daughters!

288. What a blessing that I knew what pinworms were before I discovered them in the girls. (TMI? Sorry, but I thought I'd document it for their later mortification. Besides, I seriously am very glad that I happened to learn what pinworms were just a few months ago!)

289. What a blessing to be on vacation this week with Matt, Julia, Audrey, Jimmie Kay, Danny, Amy, Jacob, Brodye, and Eli!

290. What a blessing to arrive at the condo in time for some water play Tuesday. Wednesday is supposed to be much cooler!

Random stuff

I'm with the inlaws and the complaints have already begun... ha! I'm not blogging enough!!
Our preschool went to the Corn Maze last week. Audrey had a great time.

Julia is doing great at school. She just loves her teacher, her friends, and the whole Kindergarten experience. Here she is doing some homework.

Despite my ramblings about how wonderful my kids are, sometimes they aren't perfect.

Example: Markers and crayons on the wall.
