Across the ocean, they go...

Our friends have been reassigned to Germany with the US Military. Such a sweet family, they all like to laugh and their kids are precious. They like to play cards and games and all our kids can play together without anyone getting hurt. Most of the time. They even let us watch their big screen tv when the HOGS were on ESPN (which we don't have) and they were actually at the game. Good friends indeed.

This is a picture of all of us and another family who we get to play with. It was an emotional Sunday morning. I'm so glad I had my camera in my purse. There's an old Amy Grant song that said if you find a friend that's faithful, if you find a friend that's true...then thank the Lord, He's been doubly good to you. My sentiments exactly.

This is the THIRD little girl in Sheridan's SS class to move away since last year. OK, that's a lot, even for a 5 year old. Really, I'm thinking Sheridan is wondering deep down if we're next. (What she doesn't know is there is another girl in her class whose family is leaving after the school year. Really.)

We're missing our friends already. They plan to return in 3 years. What will we be like in 3 years? Ryan will be a senior in high school. Sheridan will be in 3rd grade. Richard will be in his mid 40s.

I hope they have a great time in Germany. But I hope that they will want to come back after being in such a wonderful place for soooo long!!!
