Above is a moment when the kids were ushered inside to be safely away from 'the tree guy'. He was taking down a very sick tree while we were in Florida and had come back to remove the stump with awesome machinery. Unfortunately they had to move inside. I loved how they made room for one another on the bench in the kitchen (no pinching or whining!!?) and watched amazed at how much mulch can be made from one stump!!
The next pic is a moment that Sam and Sara have had over and over again. Filling up the water contain and watering anything at all! Sara wears big sister's shoes and frolics freely throughout the yard, happily (as long as the water container is full!!) I love how she takes care of her so patiently and lovingly! Sara calls her "Nita". Her version of Samantha. Still too much of a mouthful. Sam helps Sara in so many ways. I can see she is attentive to Sara when her needs are imperative and acute. It reminds me in a small way of Matthew 11:28, Jesus said, "Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." That is what Christ does, just because he loves us! Samantha walks with Sara, just because she loves her! Love that girl!!
