Sibling Companionship

Some studies and authors suggest the homeschooling creates conditions that assist in close sibling companionship. We have our moments, especially if my husband and I get busy with work and the kids are starving for attention. We have those moments where they are at each other and sometimes are even hurtful, but for the most part I can see a closeness between them that I'm so proud of. In these pictures Zoe is still a bit ill.  In times of need they really are available for each other. It's wonderful to see.

“[There is an odd grammar in that sentence, which seems wrong, but is actually precise.] Close siblings were less common, ... It seemed.” ~ Kate Adie

I know exactly what you mean. Even though mine are twins, they still pick at each other. But at the end of the day you know they truly love each other.
