My second favorite thing of being a mom is raising siblings. I especially love when they do sweet gestures for each other. This is a post about something that Burl made for Ridge's birthday.
During the course of Ridge's party preparations, Burl slipped away and enthusiastically started working on a project. He wanted to write a play for everyone. It was about an owl that saved a fox from being eaten by a bear.
He wrote the narrator's script, created a setting, made a fox out of balloons and construction paper, gathered costumes, and labeled everything. His cousins willingly fulfilled the roles that he assigned them.
This was such a huge deal to me! I give all the credit to kindergarten for this level of courage, creativity, and execution. It was beautiful. The crowd demanded an encore, which was pretty easy, considering it lasted only a minute.
