She Still Loves Me

When I said goodbye to Sis #2 in Phoenix, it wasn't the same and I was worried I had done something wrong or our relationship was changing.

Tonight, those worries were squashed!

I called my stepmom, and I hear Sis #2 in the background, "who are you talking to mom?"


"Oh oh oh, I want to talk to Sissy!! Can I talk to Sissy? Pleeeaaasee!"

What a way to make an older sister smile!

Here's what's funny! I ask her what she's up to, expecting to hear about her piano lessons, drama class, girl scouts, church, or swimming. Nope! She said she's writing 3 reports.

Me: 3 reports? I thought you were on summer break.

Sis #2: I am *giggle*

Me: Then why are you writing reports? What are you writing them on?

Sis #2: On history books that I got from the library. I got 7 books but some are similar so I'm making 3 reports out of them. Maybe I can email them to you when I'm done.

Me: Wow! That's awesome! I can't wait to read them! What books are they on?

Sis #2: Two of them are on the 13 Colonies and two of them are on our country's presidents and first ladies. (Then she said something about 3 other books...I didn't understand...must have been over my head)

Me: Oh wow!

Sis #2: Here, let me read you part of it (as she reads me about part of the 13 colonies)

Stepmom takes the phone and I ask her if Sis #2 is being punished for something. She laughs and says no...that she chose those books at the library. All her friends are reading popular 2nd and 3rd grade books, and she chooses history books.

I'm very proud of her! But even more so, I'm glad nothing has changed!

Nice to see someone else with an unnatural love of History.

I bought a 7 DVD set on WWII battles recently and can't wait to set aside a day to watch them all.
