Oh, I had so much fun yesterday at Joanne's house! It was great to catch up with my long lost friend Kari, and to meet Kimberly, Kate, and Angie. Holly was there too, and though we live very close to each other, we don't see each other often, so I was thankful to spend time with her too! Angie's sister Amy was sick and didn't get to join us, and I was sad that Wendy was unable to come too. We missed you guys!
Joanne made a most delicious lunch for us, and it was so fun to sit around her table and visit. It's interesting because I met some of those ladies for the first time yesterday, but because I've read their blogs, I felt like I already knew them a little bit.
Abbey ended up skipping school to go with me yesterday because there was a glitch with the after-school arrangments I'd made for her. She felt so grown up, and I'm glad she joined us because she was there to take this group photo. Kari is missing because we forgot to take one before she left...sorry Kari!
It really was a fun day for all of us! Joanne is so warm and thoughtful! She even made apple pie for dessert because she knows I don't like chocolate. Wasn't that sweet!? Thanks, Joanne, for having all of us over. It was wonderful to be on the receiving end of your hospitality!
