the big girls are back!

July 26, 2016


The whole gang is back together again! After six weeks apart, they greeted each other with gigantic smiles and even bigger hugs. I shed happy tears to have our family back together again.

When I was growing up, it was a tradition in my family when someone left on a trip, and then came back home, we made welcome home signs. We’ve continued that on in our own Bratcher family, so Soul, Glow, and I prepared some pictures and banners for True and Brave. Not only did they get a big, exuberant, happy greetings at the airport, but we also made sure our home declared that same message too. We are very happy to have them back home!

    This is adorable! It’s so wonderful to see siblings love and miss each other!

    Hi Rubyellen, it’s so nice of your mother-in-law to do this with the girls. When the younger girls come of age, and are able to spend some time in the summer with their grandma, how will you do it? Send all four together, or two at a time and rotate them accordingly?

      My MIL said she was ready for Soul to join them this year, but Ben and I didn’t think Soul was ready for that. Assuming my MIL is able to next year (health-wise), the plan is to send the older 3. We kind of go back and forth on Soul going, but we will see at end of school year next year if she’s officially ready. She’s the one that tends to fight with the sisters a bit more, so that’s our main concern is that there will be more fighting for my MIL to have to address. It will be a few more years until Glow can go though.
