Evyn and Ashlyn were enjoying the mild weather outside this afternoon while J cleaned his truck and I rested on the couch. I heard Ev come inside, apparently to get two cups of water – for the "sit playground" (aka the picnic bench; have I told you she has her own way of describing things?).
Me: "That's awfully nice of you to get a glass of water for your sister, too."
Evyn, obviously proud of herself: "Yeah. We're trying to spend time together. I took Ashlyn on a walk around the house. Showed her some ant holes and stuff. She fell two times but I helped her up. We're trying to be nice to each other and spend time with each other since we're mean to each other a lot. So I'm trying to be nice today."
