In July we had some very special people come to WA for a visit...not just with us but with several friends, we happen to make the list! Well and considering we missed them the last time they were up.
My friend moved, well gosh I want to say 3-4 years ago?? Too long how about that! However, I will say that are doing well and making all kinds of friends and being social and fitting in so I'm very happy for them and glad everything has fallen into place for them and the family. I just tend to have a selfish side and miss my friend dearly. I love writing her and sending her fun cards...writing is such a lost art!
Anyway, we got to see them after the 4th of July...well really we ran into them at the town parade! It was such a surprise...they were standing by the rest of my family and there she was! Oh I got teary-eyed and pulled myself together of sorts but it was so fun!
The next day we met at a park and the kids played together, it was interesting to see them try and figure things out after so long, mostly Lee and his friend. They have missed each other and they really are like-minded boys. It was good to see them reconnect, when it was time to go it was hard to say good-bye (I wish Lee was a writer, they could be pen pals!)
Here Ian and my friend's daughter...they are the same age. These 2 went to preschool together, I absolutely love being able to say that! I moved so much as a kid I could never say that...the longest I stayed anywhere was High school, and by then everyone already knows everyone so trying to fit in and make friends while being the outsider was/is tough! Oi!
Thank you Lord for that gift you gave me!
*Also I had to laugh at my own kid photo bombing my picture...his Minion shirt totally looks like a creepy person peering into our picture!
