Traveling School

Over the weekend, we traveled around the state to attend a family reunion and then visit my sister and her family at their rental cottage. For the most part, Josie is a horrible traveler. She fusses in her carseat if the ride is any longer than fifteen minutes and she refuses to nap. Emma decided to take this opportunity to work with Josie on her animal sounds and body parts while we traveled to one of our many adventures.

I knew that the age difference (8 years) would have it's advantages and disadvantages. Right now, we're enjoying how much Emma is exploring her role as teacher.

Enjoy the short video that Emma shot:

How funny! Looks just like a trip in our car. Thank goodness for older siblings. Josie says "more" just like Chloe. Everything is "more" these days, huh.
Emma is doing a stellar job teaching Josie new things!
Great video, keep them coming.
