Poor Sarah! Philip and Thomas just rode off on their bikes and they didn't take her! This kind of thing happens all the time. The boys are getting busy doing what 9 and 10 year old boys do. They can ride bikes, play football at friends house. They experience a certain level of trust and independence a 4 year old just does not have. If they can go...why can't she? Sometimes the 5 year age gap really is a problem. Sometimes I think we should adopt another girl close to Sarah’s age. Of course Juergen does not share this way of thinking!
