This week one of my very dear friends was in town for a visit. Kathy and I met right before we both had our first babies, and seemed to connect right from the start. Over the next year and a half we grew closer and would get together for play dates and our weekly bible study. Last April (almost a year ago) she moved, way too far away. I was so sad to loose what had become one of my best friends since college. As far apart as we are we have amazingly remained close and stay in touch weekly. I do miss seeing her and getting to "do" more daily life with her, but I'm still so thankful for her encouraging friendship even if it is miles away over the phone. We had a great visit, despite the chaos of the little people in our lives! It was so good to see her the past few days and I'll look forward to the next time we get to visit again!We were excited to finally meet sweet baby Isabel. Like their older siblings, Emery-Claire and Isabel are close in age, about 5-5 1/2 months apart.
