Irina-- While packing for the trip, she was making sure she helped everyone else w/ their bags. Going over the checklist for the younger ones who did not understand it.
Max-- He knew Warren had worked really hard on the yard all day. Back yard still needed some weedwacking. Max volunteered to do it for him. Again, thoughtful act for sure.
Yana-- Well, remember the two fighting sisters in the van on the way back from D.C.? Here's a picture that may be worth a thousand words or more.
Bojan-- When they were doing warrior body painting, Bojan knew there wasn't enough paint for all of them. Well, enough black paint. So, he stopped his body painting to share w/ Alyona & Nik who also wanted to paint themselves all black like their brother. Very thoughtful of him.
Alyona-- Alyona has really been practicing being a good big sister. She is SO ready for her new sisters to come home. Her thoughtfulness to one of the "littles" I watch is great & refreshing to see. She keeps telling me "mom, see what a good big sister I'll be?!" She sure will. Love it.
Alex-- Nik was out of water at the restaurant and took awhile for the waitress to come back. Alex said he can just have mine and I'll wait. Remember, this is my RADish saying this! Even today, he gave Ethan extra crackers. Just being nice. Very thoughtful Alex.
Nik-- He's been playing more and more w/ Ethan (one of the "littles"). He'll take Ethan and go look for bugs together. He also tries to help him when he falls. Ethan is 2yo so tends to fall b/c he wants to go faster than the legs will carry him. Never hurt but Nik is first to try to make sure he's okay. Again, thoughtfulness.
