Brother helpin' brother

I had to take care of a few chores, and I've been working with the boys are taking some ownership over their school work... thinking that it might help them focus a little better. Their instructions were to finish the assignments then hit the living room for a little reading time. They could read to each other or read on their own, I didn't mind either way. Passing by the living room this is what I found. Bubba with the book in his lap, and Bobcat patiently helping him when Bubba came to a word he was having trouble with. As I continued about my chores I heard things like "it's okay Bubba take a deep breath and try one more time", and "that is a long vowel"... Apparently all my words make an impact, it just takes a while...

Thank God for these moments! It seems they always happen in my house just when I am at the end of my rope.
