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.
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...
