Everything I love about my children is in this photo. It is such a picture of who they really are right now.
Emily: reading (always), headphones on (The Beatles or The Who), hair done, with some makeup and jewelry (sooooo turning into a girl who cares about her looks), and leaning just a tiny bit towards her brother but not really touching him (she's a loner a lot of the time)
Andrew: reading his favorite series, wedged in the middle (always making room for himself when it doesn't seem like there's room for him), his "sports pants" on ("sports pants" are so much cooler than other pants, ya know), no socks on, and leaning on Elizabeth (he is such a toucher - I still call him my love bug)
Elizabeth: reading a Justin Beiber magazine (she is turning into such a tween and it's killing me), wearing her school sweatshirt (she loves, loves her school), half-painted toenails (stuck between being a little kid and a girly girl), and letting Andrew lean on her (she declares hatred for her little brother much of the time but she, too, is a snuggle bug and really adores him)
I just love them. And love their love of reading just as much. :)
