In this picture it ACTUALLY looks like Grace and Evan are enjoying themselves.
In actuality they were. For once...in a very long while.
They've been sparing partners as of late. I don't know if it's the age that they are (almost 11, almost 12...only 13 1/2 months apart), if it is the fact that they are both on student council this year and have to do stuff with each other, or the fact they they are boy and girl...I just don't know, but they have not been very nice to each other lately.
But we tell them over and over and over and over that you will have him/her as your sibling FOREVER.
Yes, we know it's a long time. but really...
What we really mean is WHEN WILL YOU START BELIEVING US?
However, Saturday, my parents were over helping Brent install electric to our barn, so the kids were forced to be outside together.
Since Evan recently learned to drive the four-wheeler (his right of passage) we suggested maybe they ride that. It was a beautiful day after all.
SOMETIME in their lives they will be friends. Good friends like my sister and I are.
For now, I guess I'll take it in short bursts. It's all I've got.
