56. Stick together.

Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet.  ~Vietnamese Proverb

Just this week, as we stopped for ice cream and McDonald's sweet teas on the way home from a field trip, some one approached me and asked "how old are the twins?"

Yes, even though you two are two full years apart - you do look like twins.

More importantly you act like twins.


 And I love it. 

Pumpkin was here two short years before Bubbe arrived - and lucky for her, she doesn't remember life before Bubbe.

You spend every moment you can playing together. You are constantly creating new games, new pretend worlds, and new adventures to do together. 

Yes, you argue. A  lot. 

And yes, there are days where the drama between you two is greater than any drama you could perform.

But, in the end, you always end up back together - playing, laughing, enjoying each other.

One of the beauties of homeschooling the two of you is the privilege of getting to nurture that bond between you. Neither of you have any outside ideas of who you should or shouldn't play with. You aren't influenced to only play with boys or girls, or kids in your grade, or any other such nonsense. 

I wish this for you always - always stick together.
