|Cory dressed for Sunday school.|
I probably never told you much about Cory's family. Did you know he has twin sisters? Yeah, twice the fun, you think, or twice the trouble. In Cory's case, it's twice the trouble.
|Amanda is on the left. Amy is on the right.|
I remember my little niece Betsy last year, when she lived on the ranch for awhile. She nearly drove me crazy and that was only one little girl! But two? I don't know how Cory manages them.
But nothing seems to bother Cory much. He hauled Amy and Amanda into Miss Hall's classroom, slammed the door real quick, then raced up the stairs to our classroom. "Ma told me I just have to make sure they get to the classroom in one piece, and that they make it home in one piece. I don't have to watch 'em on the playground. That's Miss Hall's job." He whistled. "She's got her hands full this year."
But I know that deep down, Cory loves those two little troublemakers. Last summer they came down with scarlet fever, and Cory was right there, reading to them and making up stories to keep them still. I went over there too and brought them lemon sticks to suck on to soothe their throats. Actually, they do look kind of sweet when they're lying still . . .
