New and Old Friends

This has been a fun week filled with both old and new friends.

You might remember me talking about Jennifer and her family when they traveled to get Molly not too long ago. Jennifer and I grew up in the same city, but never knew each other then. We met when she contacted me via email. She shared that she had done a web search for "brick floors" and my blog came up :) She started following my blog and before long, her family decided to adopt from China!!! What an amazing and humbling story...I love it!! This family does not live in our city anymore and this week was the first time I have been able to meet them in person. I was thrilled to meet Jennifer, her husband, three precious boys and sweet little Molly!!  My girls are in love with Molly!

We also got to visit with my longtime BFF, Rachel, and her family.  I didn't take many pics at all, but here are a couple.  Rachel has 3 kids the same ages as my boys.  They always have so much fun together, and the girls are no exception.  They love Caitlin.

We had a very boring calm 4th of July and it rained most of the day.  No cute red, white and blue pics for me this year :(

I remember you mentioning Jennifer. That is truly an AWESOME story. Its amazing the wonderful relationships that are formed thru blogs truly still just amazes me.

The 4th was pretty lowkey here too.
