Love of Learning

Edited: My two kids' relationship goes in waves of fighting, or sweet sibling bliss, never in between. A couple weeks until yesterday we had a particularly long bout of fighting. Little T was smacking Special K on the face. She cried in pain and bewilderment. He'd climb over her to get somewhere else, kneeing her in the process. He'd grab her toys and scream until she gave them to him. "He's so annoying!" was Special K's constant refrain. Not exactly a great photo for Love Thursday. :) Then today as if on cue for Love Thursday, as we were driving to gym this morning, I captured more recent love.



Yesterday Special K and he had a playfight where they tumbled about and tangled legs, and laughed and laughed. After that he kept jabbering to her sweet nonesense. "I don't understand what he's saying!" Special K exclaimed as bewildered but also delighted. He follows her everywhere, tries to keep up with Special K and her friends. When she was sitting at dinner yesterday, he pulled himself and leaned his head against her several times putting his arm around her. Then today this moment. I hope love will reign for a couple weeks.


Here's the original photo of another time when love also reigned, but back in November. Special K is copying Little T, who is pointing at something and I'm sorry, but I've forgotten what he found so fascinating. So it shows Special K and Little T's love for each other and their curiousity aka love of learning.



For Love Thursday

I love that picture of them holding hands. May their hearts continue to be knit together as they grow. What a precious thing, the love of a brother and sister for one another.

My grandkids are the same way. One day my youngest granddaughter proudly wore a shirt with her brother's picture on it. Next car trip they were fighting in the van.
