Justin picked some really great friends when he was in high school.  One of the fellows and his wife are especially dear to us.  They are homeschooling their little brood too.  The have three little girls about the same age as our munchkins.  Actually for a very brief while in late August and early September they are stair steps, so this year they will be 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, and 3...then all of our guys have birthdays and catch up.

The mom and I talk and message back and forth.  Our oldest girls have even been pen pals the past couple of months.  Now that we are in Tennessee and not out in the plains, we try to see each other a few times a year.

We had the joy of visiting with them this past weekend.  The kids played in their pool, got out the dress up clothes, and pulled toys out of the far reaches of the play room.  We chatted about parenting, schooling, churches, and played a game of Risk.

We are grateful for the friends we have been given!
