Sibling Love

The older they get the more that Austen and Peyton really enjoy each other's company (and sometimes drive us crazy since it's best buddies one  minute and then lots of crying or screaming the next).  I have to say that Peyton really loves her big brother though.  She just moved to the next level upstairs at school so now she is in class across the hall from Austen. She gets to see him a lot more throughout the day and surprisingly this doesn't evoke tears from her anymore when he leaves.

In fact, I've never been more proud of Austen than the way he has taken care of his sister as she transitions to her new classroom.  They go upstairs to school together and Austen holds her hand up the three flights (parents can go up if they want but they encourage you to let the kids go up by themselves - teaching independence). When they get upstairs, he brings her to her locker to change her shoes and take off her coat.  He then hurriedly goes to his own locker to do the same before hurrying back to Peyton's locker to help her with anything she needs before walking her to her classroom.  What a great big brother. I like that he's up there watching out for her.  And, Peyton knows he is too.  She often says,  "Austen will take care of me."  She's right. He's her big brother. He always will.

Enjoying each other's company.

Minutes later having to be separated after too much silly.
