So, I took a blogging break. School has really been cramping my free time! But I have 6 weeks off for the summer.
I have to start out with a little bragging on my girl. I took the munchkins to the park last week. We've had pretty sketchy weather for the last couple months- it's been either hotter than blazes, or raining. A LOT of raining. Like 2 straight weeks + a day here, a day there. And hot. Did I mention hot? And raining? So, when we saw a day without rain, and a decent temperature (read: our skin wasn't melting off of us), we ran to the park!
While we were there, a girl came up to Xandra & Milo. I'm guessing this girl was older than Xandra- she was taller & bigger (but that doesn't mean much, as Xandra is pretty dinky- 40 lbs at 7 years old). Anyway, the girl apparently made fun of Milo's arm. Xandra told her "it's just the way God made him." Then Xandra led Milo back to where I was sitting (having no idea this was going on- I thought they were all just playing together). Xandra went back to the girl & told her that she'd hurt her brother's feelings. The girl apologized. Finally, Xandra came back to Milo & I and told Milo that if anyone hurts his feelings again, he should just walk away.
I'm not sure if I've ever been more proud of my girl. It almost made me teary-eyed. She loves him so much, and the feeling is very mutual. They have the most amazing relationship. I'm not sure how exactly I fostered that, or if I should even take any credit. I just love that they will stick up for one another, and show the world their love for each other.
I'll post a few iPhone pics, as I haven't gotten my big-girl camera out lately (other than for paying customers- but that's another post).
