Sweet Friends

When you get older, you have a choice in who your friends are.

When you are 4 & 3, not so much.

Except for your preschool friends, your friends are usually the children of your mommy and daddy's friends. You are all thrown together, like it or not, because your parents are friends.

Luckily, in this case, it worked.

That's Reid, Annalyse, Riley, LB, AC and Lucy. Reid and Riley belong to our friends Ken and Jammie and Annalyse and Lucy belong to Brooke and Nathan (who also claim the precious Charlotte in the post below).

Aren't they sweet? Jammie snapped this picture the other night while we all went fishing in the lake near our homes and I absolutely love it! Poor Reid - he's the only boy! Our kids have actually gone from playing next to each other (as they did in the beginning) to playing together.

We all live in the same neighborhood, attend the same church and are in the same small group at church - which means when we meet on Sunday nights, the kids get together too. They have no choice but to be friends :)

The other night they all came over to roast marshmellows and make smores in our backyard. So much fun!

My prayer is that my girls will be blessed with good friends as they grow. So far, they're off to a pretty good start. :)
