sister reading to little brother

Reading night.  I remember when my kids were little I would read to them several nights a week.

It was such a quiet special time with them.  But somehow when they learned to read we got away from that practice.

As our family grew we decided to divide and conquer.  When our daughters became teenagers they would take turn reading with their brothers.

We were able to pass on quality time and instill that value between siblings.  This picture was several years ago with Grace and David reading but recently she and Will started reading the Hunger games together.

How does your family share quality time with siblings?  #MomSays
