One of my greatest hopes for my children is they will have the kind of friends that I did when I was in high school. Friends that build, encourage, motivate, and make life fun.
With my friends, I never had to worry about compromising my standards, I could be my absolute self and I knew I could always count on them to help me "Choose the Right", and to be there when I needed them.
For the past two summers, two of my very best High School friends; Lola Harms Blaylock, and Athene Perry have been able to come visit me with their kids while Adam is away at scout camp. They were here for a few days last week, and we had a blast!
When we get together, it seems as if no time has past since our H.S. days, the only difference is that our names have all been changed to Mom. (well... and some extra wrinkles and lbs.)
Our kids all got along wonderfully. They spent the days jumping on the trampoline, launching a water rocket, building with blocks, watching movies, going swimming, and "just playing".
Lola, Athene and I spent the days catching up, reminiscing, laughing, and being matchmakers for our children.
I hope this tradition continues and that our friendship will only continue to grow over the years.
Thanks for coming friends, see you next summer!
