Earlier this week Reilly had a Sukkot event at school, during lunch. It was too hot to go outside, so the event was moved inside and became more of a "watch your kids eat lunch" event. Not that we don't enjoy leaving the office for that ;-) In any case, here is a picture of Reilly with her friend Livia!

One of the things that I have had to get used to in the last 5 years, is the amount of bugs in Florida. They are everywhere! I had never heard of love bugs before moving here, but what a crazy thing! Every May and September, just out of the blue, the state is overcome with love bugs - seriously! Just one day! And as quickly as they come, they disappear.
You walk outside, and they fly onto you and into your house. You can't walk into a store or your car without being covered. Our back patio is covered! So this weekend the girls discovered the joy of catching these slow moving creatures. Reilly did great, she let them just hang out on her hand. Brooke mastered the pincher grip, so as you can imagine she tried to destroy the population all on her own ;-) But they were both so proud to show me every one they caught!

Bedtime has been quite the battle for us. Reilly has been ready to move from her toddler bed to a bigger bed, but we wanted to wait for Brooke to be ready to move from the crib. It seemed to us that it was best to move them sooner than later, for Reilly's sake. So we bought bunk beds! So here is Brooke on her final day in her crib...
Reilly was so excited!! She was going to sleep on the top and Brooke was going to sleep on the bottom bunk. She was talking about it for weeks! When the beds arrived, Reilly climbed right up and played. But when it came to bedtime, she was much happier snuggling up to Brooke. :-) What parent can complain about that. She has decided on her own that she will sleep on the top "when I turn 5!" So for now....baby steps...they sleep together in the bottom. And they are cute!!

Last weekend we took the kids to Disney. We were lucky enough to have a free night at one of our favorite resorts, so the kids played by the unbelievable pool for one day, and the second day we went to the Magic Kingdom. Reilly is tall enough to ride the big rides and braved Space Mountain!!! She was so excited, but afterwards wasn't such a fan :-). Brooke was big enough to drive the race cars and really enjoyed herself just taking in the sights and sounds. It was a really great weekend!

Reilly and her Pre-K class were Shabbat Stars on Friday. She has talked about it for two weeks and ran around the house singing. She was so excited!! What it meant was that during weekly Shabbat, they got to get up on stage and sing a song. They did a great job and were all smiling from ear to ear! The video didn't come out fabulous, but Reilly is the one on the far right.
