Recently Simon asked me "Mom, have you ever had the feeling that one of your siblings is actually your best friend?"
I answered that my sisters were actually my very best friends.
"Ya, I sorta feel that way about Josh."
Josh is such a good big brother. When he's home he plays with Simon a lot- video games, board games, trampoline and ping-pong are some of their favorites. When Josh is gone, Simon asks repeatedly when he'll be home.
The other day I heard him explaining to one of his friends in the car, "I'm pretty much a mini Josh."
Savannah is another one that puts significant effort into building relationships with her siblings. She will play with them and tuck the little boys into bed at night- they love to have her tell stories.
Eli often begs for people to ride bikes with him. Savannah couldn't resist his pleadings.
These are some lucky little boys to have such great older brothers and sisters!
