Building Sibling Relationships

Building Sibling Relationships
            You have seen it happen more than once. You walk into your favorite store and there is a set of siblings. You start shopping when you see the older sibling pinching the younger one. The younger sibling starts defending herself. Within minutes, the siblings are yelling at each other, and before long, they are saying really some really hurtful words. And to top their fight off, the siblings vow to never speak to each other again.
            Siblings are some of the most important people in our lives. They are the people who are with you probably the longest in life. They are the ones who were born before and/or after you, and after you graduate and before you get married, your siblings are your companions. Siblings are the ones that encourage and support your dreams. They are the rivals you can’t live without. Unfortunately, the world sees no reason for kids to have many siblings, and they [the world] definitely sees no reason why siblings should have a strong relationship. Many don’t think a relationship with their siblings is important. Sadly, many take the world’s advice.

Answering Assumptions // Small Families

*Disclaimer* This is our views from our family. We are somewhat cheapskates. We aren’t perfect, and if you talk to other small families, your answers will more than likely be different.
So, my sis (Lacey) and I decided to make this a group effort (if you can call two a group). We very much enjoyed the assumptions, some which gave us some very needed laughter. My answers will appear as LW5.1, and Lacey’s answers will appear as LW5.2. Let the ball roll!

-You find it harder to understand boys
Yes!
LW5.1- Having a small family with only one sister does make it harder to understand boys, especially since you don’t know how to react and/or deal with them. Like when a boy wants you to hold a baseball bat and hit a ball with a bat you can barely hold. That may have been one of my older second cousins.
LW5.2- Yes. It's especially hard when we do group activities. Explaining things suddenly become a lot harder. But, if we remain respectful and courteous to one another, we usually work it through.

Thoughts About Small Families

Okay friends! This is going to be a different post. :-) Brooklyne over at Showers of Blessings did a assumption post (about what we thought we knew about her), and I am going to do a similar post, only it's going to be about what YOU think when you hear 'A Small Family'. Since most of you have more than one sibling, I thought it'd be fitting. :-) You assumption could be something similar to 'you get lonely with only one sister'. Just tell me what you think and I will tell you [from living with only one sister] whether it is true or false. I know that many people have different ideas on what it's like living in a small family, so I am going to [do my best] to tell you what is true and false. Hope this post makes since, if not, read Brooklyne's post here.
P.S. I need your assumptions by August 6.

July's Over?

July is over!? We're over half way through the year! Here is just a peak of what's been going on in my life.

Highlights:

  • Fourth of July. We didn't do anything special
  • The 4-H fair! My projects all did well, and two of them are going to state. (I don't mean to brag--I am just really excited)
  • Family gathering. My dad's only little brother came up from Texas. 5 out of 7 of my dad's siblings were there and I met another second cousin I didn't know I had.
  • Prayer breakfast
  • I finished school! I am no longer a seventh grader!

What I Learned Through My 4-H placings

Weird title, I know. But you learn from everything. And these lessons are worth learning.

1. Cat Poster--Placing: State fair, Grand champion blue
Hard work pays off. I spent a lot of time working on the poster, and I managed to make it to the state fair. So, when you are getting tired of working, remember hard work pays off.  "I can do all this through him who gives me strength."~Philippians 4:13
