>Sisters / Friends

>The last few days have been full of school recitals, dance festivals and sick kids. My kids’ school has a habit of doing these two things (recital and festival) every year during the last two weeks of school.

My youngest was feeling left out, so half way through the performance she went to sit with her older sister’s class. This made her feel a little better; she was starting to get sick. It is always nice when, for a split second of time, you see that your kids truly love each other. This isn’t to say that they don’t show it all the time; it’s just that I don’t always get to notice it like I should.

So while I was behind them watching the second oldest daughter dance and perform, who is just getting better from being sick for the last three days, I noticed this picture happening. Just could not resist the chance to catch that moment in time.

Then Mom takes a picture and the older sister notices. So she tells little sis to turn around for a photo. Well little sis doesn’t want her photo taken. So big sister tries to make her look and the moment is gone; aren’t sisters great!

I have two sisters myself, and I remember my big sister taking care of me and teasing me, and it is all good. She is still someone I look up to even as an adult. Our lives have taken different turns throughout the years, but I always know we are there for each other.

My little sister was the one I was teasing and taking care of as a child. and my older sister took care of our little sister when she was a teenager. It is great to see that my children are learning to pull together, too, and still have fun with being sisters and best friends.

    >So Sweet! It is nice to observe these little moments that are just between the kids. It’s one thing to say, “Ok, we’re gonna do this together,” but something quite different when they choose it.
