When i take the girls to school, they both have to line up outside their classrooms. We always line up outside of Elle's first and as soon as the bell rings, Elle is always ready in the line. You can then hear Mia running across the playground from the trim trail shouting for Elle. She then jumps at her sister. Even though they will see each other at their first break, it feels like it will be forever. Sometimes i have to seperate them so Elle can go into her classroom and so i can get Mia into hers but it always makes my heart melt to see them gripping onto each other in that little line.
They then come home and i get to hear about the games they played together at break and lunch time. It makes me so proud that Elle lets Mia play with her and her friends in the playground. I hope that she will always be there to look out for her sister. All of Elle's friends love Mia as well. They have all taken her into their little group and she gets to play with all the big girls. I am sure it won't be the same by the time they come to upper school but, for now, they are so happy to be together and playing together and Elle is always telling me how excited she gets when she see's Mia in the hall at lunch time or how Mia got to go up in assembly to get an award. She is so proud of her sister and her sister is so in awe or her.
