I grew up surrounded by cousins. Jane was one of my best friends throughout grade school and high school and although our adult lives have separated us we’ll always have a bond that’s different than most because of that family dimension and the countless hours we spent together as our personalities took shape.
I love seeing my grandchildren having the same experience.
These Texas and Oklahoma cousins see each other frequently. They eagerly look forward to family visits and although they don’t realize it, they’re making special memories that will last a lifetime.
But these two, they seem to have a special attraction to each other and literally yearn for one another when they’re apart. They are first cousins who couldn’t be more opposite in physical looks but who share the same joy of life and apparently can find an endless supply of mischief to get into.
Xander is a year younger than Spencer but he calls him “baby Spence.”
Considering their size difference I wonder how much longer that’s going to be tolerated.
Even cousins who are best friends have their limits!
