"The Girls"

I've always thought it kind of funny when people refer to their single-sex children as "The Boys" or "The Girls". I have three brothers, growing up we were always "The Kids". Since we've had multiple, we've had both sexes, so they were always "The Kids".
Until recently.

Our girls love to go with their Dad. Will does too, but frequently he is busy in the sandbox, or his newly cleaned room, and is to busy chopping his corn, or planting his rye to go. So the girls go.

Bea wants to help Elle with her chores, Elle reads to Bea, and can really take care of her. And, due to the layout of this FABULOUS farm house (read all the sarcasm that you want into that...) and coming baby, Bea is moving out of the nursery and in with Elle. Elle opted to have Bea sleep with her and have more play space instead of sleeping alone and have two beds in the room.
Here they are. Big sister with all the covers...and laying on half-naked baby sisters head.

This is the other day when I sent Elle out to get her. Bea had climbed to the top of this pile of wood, chasing a kitty I'm sure. And they sat up there for awhile. Chatting. Even though they are 7 years apart, I hope that they are best friends when they get older.

I love my brothers, and am glad that I have them, but I think I will always wonder what it would be like to have a sister...

I can tell you from personal experience-sisters are the best. My brother is cool, but I don't think I could live without my sister.

Wow! I didn't know that sisters had to always obey each other to be sisters! I now know my correct role! Forgive me for my past blunders!

And I love you too!
