Got a surprise visit from a childhood friend, her children, and her lovely parents this morning. I spent a great deal of time with these folks at their home while we were in elementary school. They are still as kind and funny(!) as they were then. When my family decided to move as I entered fifth grade, I mourned the loss of M.B., her parents and siblings as neighbors more than anything else in that move.
M.B. and I attended fourth grade together, and I am sure I spent every waking moment possible with her. I wonder how many meals they fed me as a ten year old? Looking back, I learned much about families from them.
Our children played together like old friends too. Isn't that sweet?

Cheers for old friends... and new ones that immediately act like old ones! Sweet, indeed.

Isn't it a treat to put contemporary faces with old memories.

I am so glad that we were able to stop. My city kids enjoyed seeing the goats and chickens. Wish we could stop by more often.
