Multitudes on Monday - August 22, 2011

A few of our many blessings from this past week ....

A real live froggy found IN the froggy pool (Staunton River State Park).  Who knew frogs could live in pool filters??

The chance to enjoy the riverfront and let a boy be a little boy.  He LOVES throwing rocks in water!

The rainbow we found in the sky on our way home one afternoon.  God's paints were much more vivid in person!

Children who want to work together to get their chores done - even hair-brushing - so they can go back to playing together.  I'm so glad that they are such good friends!

Simple pleasures - watching the big fountain at Streets of Southpoint one nice summer's evening.

Cardboard boxes.  Who needs fancy electronic toys??

A child's joy - found today in practicing for our English tea party coming up this week.  I love their enthusiasm!

What blessings have you been given today??
