I haven't wanted to wish this year away but i am so glad that i am able to do the yearly siblings round up. I make sure that i don't look back over the year at the previous photographs so that when i come to do this post each year, it is extra special.
This week, i was talking to Elle about friends. She had a day at school where all of her friends were busy playing in groups at lunchtime and she was going from group to group to ask to join but her friends were already busy playing. She said she felt lonely and had gone to her teacher upset. It made me sad but she then told me that she did skipping with some other children and all of her friends came over to join in so she was happy again. It made me feel better but then she turned around and said "But Mama, i know that i will always have one best friend for the rest of my life and that is Mia. Even when she isn't around, i feel a little bit of her heart with me". Those were her exact words. I really couldn't have thought of anything better for her to say about the love she has with her sister. I am best friends with one of my sisters and one of my brothers and it really is the most amazing thing in the world to have each other. To know each other inside out and to always have them all through your life. I am so excited for these two. Another year has passed and they are still the best of friends.
So, here is my yearly round up! Just seeing the images together makes me emotional. What a wonderful year! You can see our previous rounds up here and here.
