My friend, Stacy told me a funny story today about a conversation between our two first graders, who have been friends since they were 3 years old. It went a little something like this:
While deciding what to play at recess-
Isabelle says- "Addison, did you know that my mom and dad are going to Ethiopia and they're not taking me!"
Isabelle-"And I'm gonna spend the night at your house for a WEEK!"
Addison-"OK, then when you spend the night at my house, then we can play house!"
Keep in mind, this had been mentioned as an option when the time came- but we haven't talked about it for weeks with Isabelle. This just shows you that kids adjust and are fine and the parents worry WAY too much about the details! The kids will be fine!(I am telling myself this) Thank God for good friends! Oh, to be a fly on the wall at school with those kiddo's-
On another note, I caught Harrison counting his family members on his fingers today- and it was so cute- he actually added Jillian in on his pinkie! It's real to them- I love it! I just can't wait!
