This school year is proving to be quite different since the pack leader (Tage) is in school all day. The three littles have had a hard time getting started playing because they are all used to Tage directing traffic...and frankly so am I! Simon and Vi have both started enjoying each other much more and in the picture above Simon is reading to Violet. It is so cute because he can't read yet and makes it up as he goes, Violet has this particular book memorized and corrects him through the whole book....who's reading to who here! Such a different kind of play than Simon is used to...I know he misses Tage, but he is working really hard at playing with Vi...He's a great brother.
