Old Friends (figuratively, of course!)

It's been a little quiet around here. That's because I was sitting around the house eating bon bons watching my shows again. 

Oh, how I wish! I seriously don't know where my days have been going actually. I seem to look up at the clock and it will be after three pm and think, "How did that happen?".  Our days seem to just get busier around here. Ball season is still here and will be through part of July! 

But today, we had a treat! Very dear friends (who now live in Texas) came up to Seattle to visit family. So the kids and I headed up early this morning towards a town just outside Seattle. Allyson and Garrett were only two when they first met, but have always been very sweet friends. Not just the normal playmate, but always had a close bond even as very young children. Garrett has always been so sweet around her and protective in a good way.  They hadn't seen each other in about four years, but after a few awkward silences, they were back to normal. Garrett is now way taller than me! So weird seeing kids grow up. Ally and Garrett are looking so mature to me! And I'm thankful for awesome Christian friends who are dedicated to raising a true man of faith! 

It was so good to see "old friends" again especially since we are in a new place. I miss my friends and it takes so long to really know new friends well.  My friend Darcy, Garrett's mom, is one of those lifetime friends that you keep in touch with. And, oh my, her parents are dear! Her mom, Sara's, southern drawl reminds me of a few southern belles in my past. Such sweet people that I enjoyed getting to know.  

Hopefully, next time we will be able to spend more time with them!
