Lunch with the girls

Today Lindy and I went to lunch with two of our favorite girls--Erin & Emily. Don and I have known Erin and Emily since spring of 1996 when they were just little girls. We have shared holidays together, had sleepovers, baked cookies, gone to the beach, slept together in the same cabin during family retreats, just to name a few things...

As hard as it is for me to believe, Emily had freshman high school orientation today and we were getting together to say farewell to Erin as she heads off to college on Friday. These precious girls whom we would "babysit" are now babysitting Lindy. Watching Erin and Emily grow from little girls to young women is a bittersweet reminder of how fast time goes by AND that we are ALL aging.

We love you Erin and will miss you lots while you're away at college!!! Have fun, study hard, and don't forget to come back to visit.

We love you Emily and hope you will enjoy being in high school. Congratulations on making varsity tennis!!! We'll come check out a match when we can.

Such pretty girls.....all three of them! What a neat connection these girls will have with Lindy and I am sure they will be a great influence on her little life just like you were an influence on theirs.
Great photo of the three of them!
