Who needs a brother?

Having the kids back in school has been hard on Owen.  I anticipated Claire being bored and needy without them, but she's fine.  Owen is the one who spends his days pining away for when Ella comes home.  Today he attacked her (literally) when she walked through the door.  She's a good sport and happily wrestled with him.  Who needs a brother when Ella will fight, play Batman, make paper airplanes, etc?  I never thought my boy and girl who are over four years apart would be the closest pair out of all my kids, but I'm very grateful for their relationship.

  1. It's always so hard to be left behind!

    A few years back when there was only one left at home, he would wander around the house every morning for the first few weeks after school started - just looking for somebody to play with. He didn't know what to do by himself, since that was a concept he'd never dealt with before ;)
