Play Dates!

We had a play date today!  We hustled through school (or a majority of it) and went over to see Desiree (and children). Allison has moved on to Quantico, but was home visiting family. It was so much fun to meet Striker and spend time with Desiree and Allison. They were the leaders of a PWOC evening Bible study which I loved to attend.

 We prayed for these babies - Quentin our little warrior who went through chemo before birth with his Mommy and Striker - who had the audacity to be born AFTER his Mommy pcsd from Beale.

The kids played too

So refreshing to spend the afternoon with these two! 
 Anna was gone for a bit - but Sydney and Stacia enjoyed playing and Anna joined them later. 

We came home, got dinner arranged and Stacia and I left for our second play date of the day. We were thrilled to spend some time with Emma while her mom and Dad went out.  I can't tell you how fun it is to hear Emma shout, "De'Etta is here" with great gusto and joy. Everyone needs to be wholeheartedly loved by a  preschooler or two. I'm just so happy they remember us - it would be crushing if they'd already forgotten us. ::snort::

Watching Winnie the Pooh

One is never sure how bedtime will go when watching children....Emma was the easiest to put down yet....and she OWNS her routine. We love this little family and it was great fun to spend time with Emma.
