After three months of entirely too much family time this summer, my girls couldn't stand to be in the same room for five minutes without bickering. By August, it seemed like I spent half my waking hours listening to them argue or tattle or complain. I could not wait to send them off to school. And I have to say, school has been, if not a cure at least good treatment for the sister battles.
Kate and Rae spend the half hour drive to school chatting and singing along with the CD of the day. They've asked for stories about when they were little and we've laughed a lot. On the drive home they talk about their day and what they did and who was "bad" in their classes. And as soon as we get home, they rush off to Katherine's bedroom to play school. (Because apparently they don't get enough of that between 8:00 and 3:35!) I'm sure this sister love period won't last, but it I'm certainly going to enjoy it for now. I love to see them interact. The other evening I was cooking supper and looked out to see this. I think it's my new favorite photo. Of sisters.
