My mom once told me when I was younger that my brothers would be my best friends someday when we were older. She said this at a time when I was probably sad that my older brother wouldn’t let me tag along with his friends or when my younger brother had injured me downstairs in the middle of one of his NCAA “imaginary” Nerf Basketball Tournaments (don’t ask!). Yeah right, I thought, these guys don’t want to be my friend, I’m the annoying sister and always will be! All this to say, I am so blessed that my brothers and I have great relationships now that we are all grown up. We don’t talk every day, or every week, but they are there for me in a minute if I need them and they still play a protective role in my life despite the fact that I am married : )
We recently had the chance to drive up to Columbia to visit my older brother, Matt and his sweet wife, Sheryl. We had a BLAST!!!! They were the best hosts and even let me and James have a little time to ourselves while they
watched the girls…er…I mean played Prince and Princess with the girls. (I never knew my brother had such a distinguished Prince voice!) Sheryl had welcome goodies for the girls when we arrived…which automatically won them over on Columbia, Anabelle has asked to go back NUMEROUS times!
We also were able to see a high school friend, one of our former students, and family from Virginia which made the trip even better!
Here are some snapshots of our weekend…SO BLESSED to have such incredible family!
So glad that my mom was right…my brothers are pretty great : )
