Sib Love

I dropped the Little Nies off at the library yesterday with the girls in charge
It works out great; they browse the books and enjoy a little reading together
and then visit the exciting storytime hour while I grab some groceries
at the store conveniently located next door.

Nicholas had a few hard days at school, and before he and
Oliver left for school this morning; I pulled Ollie aside and told him
to sit with Nicholas at lunch today.
I was so relieved after school when Nicholas told me how happy he
was when Ollie came over to the younger grade lunch area to eat with him.
Bless you, Ollie.
Ahhh, the power of the sibling!

Claire told us tonight at dinner that she and Jane were getting teased 
because they always kiss each other on the cheeks in the hallways at school.
Some kids (and teachers!) didn't know they were sisters.
That made me laugh out loud!

I feel so grateful that my children have each other. 
Despite facing some challenging situations in their young lives,
 they have come to realize that having one another is more than enough. 
While friends may come and go, siblings are forever.
