I get to go see my friend Shannon! She is one of my buddies from our old church. We sang together, were in Sunday school together, our kids played together all the time. I haven't seen her since we left for PUMC. I know it's only been a month, but I have missed her a lot! She, with Bonnie, is my closest friend. The three of us started scrapbooking together, and now without them I don't do it at all! They are my buddies!!!!
We get to go swimming with her and FIVE of her SIX kids tomorrow too. Oh, Bliss!!! It'll be good to have girlfriend time again.

Just got home from Shannon's. It was an awesome time! I feel like I hadn't had anyone to talk to lately. You know, really, girlfriend talk. Gigi, Mom, Nikki - they are all super people, and I love them dearly. But they're FAMILY. And you can't talk to FAMILY the way you talk to your best girlfriends! That's just the way it is.
Cheeseman and Shalee were so cute! That's Shannon's youngest. They are the same age, and the best buds. After dinner, most of the kids went out to play on the trampoline or swings, but Cheeseman wanted to play more video games (they had TMNT). So he asked Shalee to come play with him, and she RAN up the stairs! She even gave him a hug good-bye.
Bman had fun too. Their other girl, Cecelia, loves to boss him around. And he likes it. They drive around in her pink Jeep all over the yard. He just squeals and laughs! He tried to jump rope with Derek and Jonathan too. It was pretty funny, since Bman can only jump about an inch off the ground. He kept getting hit in the legs with the rope. But it didn't stop him from trying again and again. Then he wanted to turn the rope. Needless to say, his little 2 and 1/2 year old self could not turn the rope up high enough for those big kids! But he tried.
We all had a wonderful time. It was worth keeping the kids up till ten, just for all the fun they had. And we are going to the pool with them tomorrow as well! Love it!!!
