I think they were told to stay together and Benjamin is just following her around wishing he could do something else lol
He does not see why holding hands is beneficial to them, since he could sit on a chair while his sister is using the black board.

Grandma's Goulash said...

You can definitely tell that it's her idea. Poor Benjamin.

Daryl said...

Ah Benjamin, life will not be easy


Akelamalu said...

You could be right Lady's Life LOL

Yes poor Ben Grandma, you have to feel sorry for him don't you?

He may as well learn now while he's young Daryl LOL
