We're Floridian Now!
It was brought to my attention a couple of weekends ago how “Floridian” we have become. Shoes(MIL), Aunt Joey(SIL), and her two children (Sweet Jenna and Jackson who endured an entire piano recital without complaint) visited. Right here I would like to insert how blessed I am to have these two ladies in my life. I understand that not everyone feels that way about their MIL, and SIL, but I do, and yes, I DO realize my great fortune. In fact, the original plan for this blog post was to gush about them and our wonderful relationship, but that's just not nearly as entertaining. The first night Shoes was relating a scarring story from her past involving the dreaded palmetto bug. Twenty min. later, I went to the bathroom and had to kill one such bug crawling across the floor. The next day the cousins flipped out over a spider in W’s room, where my own children’s reaction was to to calmly explain that “spiders are our friends…..they eat the mosquitos.” Then Will went into a lengthy oral bookreport on Charlotte’s Web. Day three (and last of their visit) we come home to a snake crawling across the sidewalk to the front door entrance.Again, my family just steps over the thing while our guests are left to....well, not be so pleased. This was Aunt Joey's (R's sister) first trip to our house since we moved to FL. I wonder just how long it will take her to return... Here are some pics from piano recital night. It was my boy's first, and Faith's second recital. Of course beaming with pride would be an understatement.
