Home Spun comic strip #171
I just want to make it clear that my children aren't perfect. They do get on each others' nerves. But I have noticed that even though they have their differences, they look out for each other and have a much stronger bond than I had with my brother and sister at that age. I know there are siblings who go to school and get along. But without the age divisions set up by schools, I have observed that homeschooled children tend to be better at including and playing with children of all ages.
I must admit that the year this happened, I was disappointed she wouldn't be playing Mary, the Mother of God. Sierra was a baby, so I could have had her play the infant Jesus. But Marina had her priorities straight. She was there for her little brother. I was very proud of her.
