After Avril's been up a while in the mornings, she will go in and wake her sister up and the two of them with often snuggle and talk for a little bit. Yesterday, I went by to see them facing one another, sitting Indian style, talking about something very serious. When I went to take their picture, they embraced so I missed the shot of them talking, but got this sweet pose instead. Their time to connect like this would be swallowed up if Norah had to go to school every day. I didn't decide to home school because I wanted my kids to be close, but that has been a benefit to this lifestyle that I didn't foresee.
