Word-ish Wednesday - Joy

"I heard the bells on Christmas Day; their old familiar carols play, and wild and sweet the word repeat of
peace on earth, good-will to men!"
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Here the Steam Engine departs from Toon Town.  Chloe loved the train and wasn't scared by the loud whistle.  Note, that it is finally fall in Florida and the trees have changed color.  We do have seasons, we really do.

Without a doubt my children BOTH love the PeopleMover.  This little blue tram runs through Space Mountain, and the Carousel of Progress in Tomorrowland.  There is often NO LINE for this ride, so we usually ride it 3 or 4 times.  In the summer, it's mostly shaded and air conditioned and affords the adults time to put their feet up for a few minutes.

This was Chloe's first trip on the PeopleMover.

She LOVED it.

Like Really, Really, LOVED it.

And there is something about watching a child express pure JOY that makes your heart sing.
This photo was taken before the train started really whipping down the track.  I am in love with this photo; It's the look of wonder on her face, it's the catchlight in her eyes, it's the fact that her eyes are perfectly in focus {and I truly struggle with that}.  This just might be one of my favorite photos.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. It's nice to have someone who can relate to what I'm going through. I ordered that book, and can't wait to start using it! 12 hours would be fantastic. I really, really appreciate the advice! <3
