Make new friends,
but keep the old,
one is silver
and the other is gold.
A circle is round,
but never ends,
that's how long
I want to be your friend!
? I'm not sure where to put the question mark, so I'll leave him there. I really liked that little song when I was young, probably because we moved so much that I was always having to make new friends, and hoping that the old ones still remembered me.
Well, I'm hoping that this move will be more permanent and that this song will have a different meaning for my daughters. In that they should always be friendly, and open to making new friends, but not that they will be forced to because they are the new girl, again.
We really loved Peoria, we felt like we were there for a long time. (Prior to moving there we hadn't lived anywhere for longer than about three months. Tiresome.) That's where Hallie learned to crawl, then to walk. That's where she started eating meals, (and actually eating them!!). That's where she learned to talk, and made her first friends (and she definitely hopes that those little boyfriends remember her. She still talks about "Fast Caleb" which cracks me up. She misses running with him.) Hanna came to us in Peoria, just in the nick of time! She was almost born a Cornhusker! Oh dear.
But I know we'll be seeing you again, Peoria. In fact, Devin will be there this Friday!
