Day Five: Your Siblings

It's been really rainy lately... parts of me LOVE the rain and how refreshing it is -- other parts really don't like it because it makes me sleeeeeeeeeepy and lazy. I've been busy this week trying to get everything together to start working. There's so much more to it than I thought at the beginning. We met with a CPA last week, and there's lots of paperwork and things to get set up (for taxes - woo) before I start working. 

[[Also, I've decided to go ahead and apply for a doctoral program. I've really tried to think and pray about this for a few weeks, and I think the next best step is to at least apply and see how that goes. We'll see. There's a lot to this application, too.]]

So for my blogging challenge today, I get to talk about my siblings! How fun!! I was raised in a very close-knit family, and we have all learned to be brother and sisters/best friends. I get to see my siblings at least once a week, and we love hanging out together with the family. One of our favorite things to do is to watch the Razorbacks on TV... or even better, to watch them in person :) We have gone to the games since we were little kids, and we are all really big fans. We all three love music very much, too... we all love to sing. 

As with most every one of my posts, the pictures do the talking. Let's look :)

this has to be one of the best pictures of me and casey :)

I guess I'm turning 2 here... with an extra candle for next year :) My sweet sister holding my hand!

you're my best friends!

I'm SOOOO glad we were raised in the same family -- grew up together -- and still want to be in each other's lives all the time! Family has always been important to me, and you're two of the biggest reasons why!! I look up to you as my older brother and sister, and I love you more than anything. There will never be anything that will divide us or keep us from being family. I plan on being close to you guys for forever... so you better get used to puttin up with me!!! I love you I love you I love you! There's never a day I don't thank God for creating you as my brother and sister... He sure did a amazing job :)

im thankful.
