The power of brothers is so strong. There are many loud and messy times, but there are even more loving days. These two are together all day long except for sleeping and Karson being at morning preschool 3 days. I can honestly say they are best friends.
I think a big part of that has to do with the fact that we live in the country. Don't take this the wrong way, I don't want my children isolated from the world. However, being in the country forces them to play with each other rather than neighborhood kids. When we moved to our current home 4 years ago, we left friends from the subdivision who they both really enjoyed playing with. Now, it's a different type of play. Learning to play and get along with your sibling. It's a sweet time of togetherness.
They are never really bored. They are pretty good at keeping entertained.
The water hose is a great entertainer, as well as our creek in the back yard. Both are a big blessing on those hot summer days.
Karson has really been interested in catching butterflies, and looking at the colors of their wings.
He even shares with little brother. Who often ends up killing them from too much love (oops!)
These wildflowers are everywhere on our property. They seem to really attract the butterflies.
I am so thankful to have these brothers home with me this summer with no interruptions.
