best friends

These are a couple of cute pics I took this week. The kids are really having a good time together. One thing I have always noticed is that my kids generally get along together really well. They love being together and spending time together, even though each one has separate friends.
This summer we are reading aloud a book called Making Brothers and Sisters Best Friends. It has the basic premise that God made your family as your first place of ministry, and that it should be your priority to practice love and godliness with your siblings first before branching out, and that there is no reason your siblings shouldn't be your closest friends. It is written by young siblings, for young siblings, and we are loving it. Most of all I love watching the kids as they grow toward one another.

I keep encouraging my children to view each other as friends and yes, even *best friends*. I'll have to get this book and let them hear it from someone besides me!
