A caring sister

The night before JJ's first day at school, Mommy wondered if JJ would be too excited to settle down and go to sleep. She was pleased to discover that it was no problem at all, and he went right to sleep almost as soon as his head hit the pillow.

His sister on the other hand, was very concerned, and had a hard time settling down and going to sleep.  She was worried that she wouldn't be able to keep her little brother safe at school because she was in the "Big Kids" play yard, and he wasn't.  Or he might get on the wrong bus, and she wouldn't be able to help him find the right one.  What a caring, sweet soul she is.
Here she is giving him a hug of encouragement before she lined up for the bus on her first day. 
She is such a good big sister.

Regenia - it touched me too. She feels things so deeply and is a very caring child.
Her concern over loved ones lost caused us all to really stop and reflect at Sarah's wedding last year. I posted a blog about in on Oct 12/12 if you want to go take a peek. I don't know how to link to it here in the comment section.
