How far apart in age are your children?

Hey! My husband and I have been TTC for about a year now. We have a four year old daughter. I always wanted to have my children close in age, but now it's starting to look like that's not going to happen. Even if I were to get pregnant this month, my daughter will be five years older than the baby. I always wanted my kids to have a close relationship with each other. Does anybody (yourselves or your kids) have siblings far apart in age, but grew up together like it was nothing?
