OK, so those of you who know me at all, know how tight I am with my brother and sister. I have the coolest siblings ever, and much of who I am today has been the balanced influence of the both of them (they are pretty night and day, black and white different except in the things they value). I feel amazingly blessed to have gotten to be the baby in the Boggess family. (Can you tell I'm REALLY missing them?)
Those of you who know the Cook clan know they, too, are a pretty tight bunch (what other family do you know that rented a gym on Christmas day and had sports marathons, I ask you?!).
All this is to background to the fact that we really want to foster closeness among our kids. I am always pounding it into Sophie's head (when she is so frustrated with Annie that she'd like to kick her into the middle of next week), "There will always be new friends, but you only have ONE sister."
So here are some of our sweet sibling moments from this summer.
