the great sleepover reunion
In the transient life that is the military you come along friends that you know will be with your for a season, neighbors and coworkers that you enjoy during your time (or theirs) at different bases around the globe. Every so often you come across a friend that you know will be around despite the different time zones. It doesn't happen very often for kids - especially young kids - as they just kind of move on, but for these 4 boys they just connected in a way that makes them friends for life. Our families also became friends and we were so blessed when they decided to make a trip happen to visit us. Just the moms and the boys, this time, but it was such a welcome reminder of times-past and reaffirmation for a future with friendships that last.
The boys spent most of the time in the house enjoying all their favorite things. I ended up with a nasty cold and so my dear friends took care of me and we enjoyed good food, wine, and endless laughs and conversation.
