Did I mention that I am incredibly thankful that these two little boys have one another? On the best of days, they are inseperable friends, spurring each other on with a healthy dose of competiition. Here, they are racing from side to side in the pool. It isn’t often we step in to remind them of their two year difference. In fact, I savor these days, where they can share clothes and shoes because they are wearing the same size.
Tonight after sending them off to bed, I heard whispering and discovered Henry had climbed into Paul’s bed. Earlier, when I came home from work, I glanced in their room to see both of them wearing their new backpacks and playing diver. They were swimming around the mermaid (Olivine) in the center of the rug.
