Although Squirrel had just returned to college on Sunday, January 8th, she insisted that she come back home for her Great Grandmother's birthday party on Saturday, January 14th. Even with a new semester underway and all the stuff that goes along with that her Daddy picked her up Friday night.
You would think she hadn't been home for a month just a mere week ago because her and Wallene were thick as thieves all weekend. They are 5 years apart in age, but they get along so well. We were a little concerned when I was pregnant with Wallene that Squirrel might be a bit jealous being replaced as the "baby" of the family, but it simply never happened. [Score!]
Besides the party on Saturday, these two spent the entire 3 day weekend studying. They spread out over the family room [next to the kitchen] and studied, studied, studied - and ate - and then studied some more.
Imagine the smile on my face when I found the note Squirrel left for Wallene before she left yesterday:
I can honestly say I have no idea how much Pooldad and I influenced how these two treat eachother and how close they are, but I will say it really warms my heart. I am so happy that, no matter what, they have eachother.
Now I can't wait for Spring Break. Woohoo!
Have a good one Tadpoles.
