Old Friends are the Best Friends

Sorry, I haven't written in a while. I have been preoccupied with school work. Last week was mid terms! I can't believe how fast this school year is going by. But amidst my very busy schedule, I was able to find time to go out with some old friends. The very girls that I went to school, church, and Awanas with all my life. However, one of my best friends that I grew up with moved to Michigan our junior year. Another one of those friends began to be home schooled her junior year. Another friend moved to Iowa... Last Sunday afternoon we were all able to get together. All of us girls, who had been together since we were in kindergarten, some of these girls walked across the platform form with me in 2008 on our Graduation Day...
We had such a great time reminiscing over our Elementary school days together. Wow, what a great time we had together. We discussed our many teachers and student teachers we had. Then about all the naughty things we did and never got caught for. :) About the time 4 of us got suspended together... The more I remembered the more I realized I was kinda naughty as a child...just a little.
The longer we sat, the more memories came sweeping over me. So many good times together, and also some not so good times together in the principal's office. As I sat at the table I couldn't help but look around the table at each of every one of the girls that I went to school with. Now we are young adults. As we sat at the table I once again felt like an 8 year old girls giggling with her best friends.
Then our discussion changed. We had all shared great times together, but now what were we doing with our lives. We each went around the table telling each other what we are now doing or planning on doing in our lives. We are all in college training to be elementary or high school teachers, nurses, secretaries, coaches, etc...
After a great time together, we said our goodbyes. And promised to keep in touch. As we got into our vehicles, I thought...what a lucky girl I am. I have amazing friends. Friends that I went to kindergarten with , friends that I plan on knowing for the rest of my life.

I look like I have been travelling all day! :) It was so much fun and thanks for making time! aren't supposed to tell people that we were suspended and the principal's office thing is a secret! :) I laugh just thinking about how embarrassing that was.
