Sometimes an idea actually comes together as you hope.....

I really love seeing the kids spend so much time together
 now that we are homeschooling ~

Big Brothers helping Little Sisters *sigh*

Building friendships from sibling'ships

It's working!

Mid Autumn Festival is all about 
being thankful for the harvest & family

 ~ and seeing how not 'everyone' is here right now.....

...I am so enjoying seeing these relationships deepen.

So thankful 

The boys have no idea how much their girls adore them ~

From a 'not so good' homeschooling Mom, 
and a 'not so crafty' Mom 

 ~ the giggles are the best encouragement to this Tired Mom's heart

 There are simply some things that no matter how hard I try....

I will never quite master.....

Starting the Push Mower is one....

...and building cool LEGO spaceships is certainly another.

Thankfully, there are 2 other Master Builders in this house....

...that also just happen to be the World's Best Big Brothers

I can admit it ~ they are way cooler then me 
and can make the best machine gun sound effects.

I think 'someone' is really liking being a little brother in this family.

Who knows, maybe one day you'll get the chance 
to be the Big Brother.....
(not anytime soon though ~ maybe to a goldfish.....)
