Wonderful Weekend!

What a beautiful weekend! We had Guthrie’s birthday party Saturday and I think everyone had fun. I know the boys and I did. It was so nice having people over again – hanging out, good food, music, enjoying the mountain. We used to have several parties a year out here. One pig party and several smaller gatherings. Saturday I felt as if things were getting back to where they should be.

Someone asked a friend if she was a ‘homeschooling’ friend or some other friend. I had the thought at the time, how does someone have a ‘something’ friend? We all have people we know from this activity or that tho a friend is just that, a friend. I might have met this particular friend through homeschooling or maybe ‘college’ or maybe work or …. But the end result is they are a friend pure and simple. And the group of friends that showed up Saturday are some of the best. It is so nice to be doing things with these friends again. I knew there was a hole in life when the boys went to school and I went back to work because I couldn’t see these friends as often. Now I am so thankful to be able to see them again on a semi-regular basis and once we get out of school we’ll be back in the thick of it again! I have spent a lot of years spending time with people I am not always comfortable with and I have never had that problem with this group of absolutely awesome people.

Bring on the summer!!!!
