Day 220

Today I want to remember the love that my children have for their friends.

Madi has her very best friend spending the night (in her words).

Isabelle fits in so well with our family, which could be attributed to the fact that she loves all the animals around the farm almost as much as Madi does.

She was so excited to help us get some feed for the kids' calves!

It was so refreshing for the kids to have a friend along who showed such excitement for something that has become more of a chore to them.

They became excited about feeding calves again too!

Thank you Isabelle!
It was all going great until this BIG {scary} animal came along...doesn't she look so SCARY?!
Isabelle got scared and started to whimper a bit (when our overly friendly dog decided to lick her a happy greeting).

Tanner immediately said, 'Don't worry Isabelle, I will protect you, take my hand.'
Seriously? This is my son? The one who pesters his little sister and brother mercilessly?!

I turned around to tell him that he was being so nice and this is what I saw..
My heart melted! Right then and there.

I saw my son not as the almost 7 year old kid he was, but as this grown up young man....

Oh my.

His little brother didn't think it was so cool ....check out this face he was giving Tanner while all this was going on...
I can just see what he is thinking....'what are you doing Tanner?!'

And just when I thought Tanner was being so mature, he decided to show off a bit for his crush...
Ok, so he is only seven.

This little piece of our day made me smile, and is definitely something that I don't want to forget!
