A Moment of Silence-Spring Break 2010

We are growing grass via cracked, WASHED egg shells, thanks Darby for the idea to use eggshells for Easter decorations. This was our science activity for the day.

Breakfast this morning was HUGE GREEN pancakes!

They are all ASLEEP.

A few years ago, my mom gave me wise counsel to nurture my own boys friendship with each other. So, many a day it is just the three of them. They are fortunate to be involved in sports, school, and church where wonderful extended friendships flourish, however, the rule at our house is=Your brother IS your best friend. Period. As in you are sticking by each other through thick and thin. Today, has been a day devoted to them. Their friendship, brotherly fun.
Here it is in pictures.

Oh, I am so glad to see these sweet boys again. I've missed talking to them and finding little surprises for them, too!

I told my boys that they were brothers for life...and they had better know that they were to look out for one another. God gave them each other and that was a gift not to be taken lightly.
My rule better not come to me tattling on your brother...unless someone is in danger or you see blood!!!

Please give them a hug from me and tell them that I think of them often!

You have the right attitude and perfect balance with mothering and blogging, Andi! I LOVE the latest post. Your boys are precious, and you and Ben are making some wonderful childhood memories for them. Your focus on the friendships among those three sweet boys is priceless.LITTLE boys grow up TOO quickly and they always tug at your heart strings - no matter how old they are!
Love ya, Mary Lise

I hopped over from J's blog (Wanting What I Have) and this post struck a chord in me. You are SO right!! Your brother IS your best friend! Thanks for the encouragement to reinstill this in my boys (I have three as well) and a girl ~ and we desire for them to love the LORD first and be best friends second. This has been a blessing to me tonight!

Have a wonderful evening!
