JR and Big D

Every once in a while, JR will say to me, "Mommy, I need more friends." And I'll reply, "You need more friends?" And JR says, "Yes. My only best friends are E, D, JM, R, AM, P, JL, and L."

If you'll notice that's eight best friends. Wow. I guess if he was just naming off the kids in his preschool class, I would think that we needed to expand his friendship world a little, but since he is naming friends from just about every aspect of his life, we usually end the conversation by reminding ourselves how lucky we are to have eight best friends and how thankful we are that God has placed them in our lives.

Big D, pictured above is one such best friend. He & his mom and dad were some of the biggest reasons we were so sad to leave the little house on D.T. Circle. It was hard to give up living just down the street from the B. Family! Big D's parents are some of the kindest, most generous people we know. So it was no surprise when they invited us over for dinner tonight.

We count Bob & Susan as some of our dearest friends and tonight Rob & I are also reminded how blessed we are to have so many wonderful friends.
