Sometimes you need your brothers help.

Sophia was in major goofball form. We were in the backyard of my in-laws and they have these great trees. The kids have climbed, swung in swings, sat under and enjoyed them since they have been very little.

She would put a chair up to the base of the tree and climb on up.

Of course she is older and taller now so there is no giving advise.

She can do in without help.

Just need to get a foothold.

I can do it she says.

Just give me a sec she says.

Finally she accepted Sam's help.

One little boost and a hoist.

Not that she will scratch her legs all up.

And then we left her there.

And laughed.

Laughed so hard the tears came.

She NEEDED our help.

Her brother was sympathetic, kind of.

Not sure if he is pushing or pulling?

My legs would be all tore up.

She made it.

Not that she is determined or anything.

See, I did it! Ok, with some help.

I have a picture of her here when she was 8. That was yesterday you know.

Carefull Sam, it ma be a trick.

Sometimes they act like they actually like each other.

and get along.

A fleeting moment in time.

Sam my quiet one, Sophia the one to be the center of attention.

This could be a little flip book.

Duck lips?

hang loose!

and she's gone.


  1. Adorable! Brought out the memories of tree climbing. Sometimes, it's good to just hang out on a limb! And smile!


  2. This was a great picture story Krista. I can see the two of them years from now enjoying that memory and the photos!
    Yes eight was just yesterday. It goes so fast.
    My oldest daughter Ginny, used to climb the tree in our yard and do her homework! I have a photo of it somewhere. I guess she found it peaceful up there! Love Di ♥

  3. That's adorable. And hilarious. And precious. And you'll remember it forever. As will they . . .
