We have my sister's children visiting us this weekend- they are 5 years old and 4 years old. It is so fun to watch their relationship grow into that super close bond only family can have. Yesterday afternoon we went to the pool. An older boy, who is something of a bully, was there and I watched as Anna Cate and Brian pointed him out to their cousins. The rest of the time, they all kept a watch out for each other to make sure the "bully" didn't bother their cousins. While I certainly don't want my children to be cruel to other children, I love the idea of them watching out for each other.
We have a fun day planned for today- more swimming and grilling out tonight!
