They’re best friends, this crew. Spending the days together has built a friendship unshakable in the short handful of years they’ve lived. It blesses me to watch them. To see the way the younger ones look up tot he older ones–I never dreamed it would be this good.
Having the two boys back-to-back and then the girls, has made for incredible ‘built-in-friends” as I say to them. Homeschooling keeps us together, and while to some, that may seem just a tad overwhelming and all together too tiring, I assure you, you are entirely right. It is good, and the gift that comes with our close proximity for hours on end, is a togetherness that I am only just beginning to see the value in.
They have each other and they know what a gift that is. Four best friends always hanging around. I love watching them together, (when all is peaceful–which I promise you, it isn’t always!)
I’m soaking it all up, because we all know how fast these wild days disappear–
Joining Lisa-Jo and fabulous others this morning for Five Minute Friday, where we cut the words loose for just five minutes, and see where they fall. No editing, just encouraging the others who play along.
