Sisterliness

We got to have the 3 grand girl sisters move in with us last week 
while their parents went on a little mini vacation. 

Big sisters come in handy for all sorts of things....



Like, Elora teaching Violet how to make her letters. 


Or putting lotion on Violet's itchy arm.

It became much more competitive outside with the squirt guns!


It's just not in Cami's nature to have a squirt gun fight.


And sometimes it just became too much for Violet 


and she needed to just go inside and practice being a Mom.


and then eat lunch by herself. 
(She told me she needed to get the baby to sleep first.)



Elora has grown up caring for Cami, 
since they are just 2 years apart. 
She is always tender and sweet and patient with her. 


Elora knowing just what to order for Cami's dinner.


I often think of Cami as I read these words hanging in our home.

That saying is beautiful! My dad passed away in February and the thought of him being pain free and reunited with his loved ones who have passed away truly has sustained me.

I'm so sorry about your Dad's passing, Peggy. What would we do without the knowledge that we will be with our loved ones again someday! And until we get there with them, what peace to know they are pain free and happy.
