A little heartbreak

20 Oct

10172013-1Miss H started school in June 2012 and on her very first day was another girl the same age. Their birthdays are only 4 days apart and they became fast friends. They ended up in the same class that fall and have been attached ever since. As parents, we are on the same schedule and often see them at drop-off and pick-up. Their teachers have commented about how much they are alike and how well they play together. We have also heard that they sometimes argue like siblings 🙂 Considering they are both only children it is kind of a funny statement.  Whenever we go to a birthday party, these two are together!


They would have been at the same schools through high school so in a really idealistic way, we imagined they would be friends for the long haul. But, we learned a few weeks ago that her parents’ jobs were taking them to Texas. Miss H insisted that we move to Texas too so they could stay in school together. I think we are experiencing the first little heartbreak over a friend leaving.

I know they will both be fine but it is still hard to see the two of them so sad (and it make me sad too!) but maybe with technology and email and eventually things like Facebook, they will continue to be friends.

Tomorrow will almost be like a new day of school without her best friend.

(Miss H is really not that much taller….she is standing on a curb and on her toes!)

Last Weekend’s Update

20 Oct


I am running a little behind in the updates. Last weekend, we had a great time at the Fire Department Open House. Miss H has waited a whole year to be able to use the fire hose again.


They let her do it twice.


We drive past the firehouse almost everyday and she always asks if we can stop by.


They should do this more than once a year!


Two of the firefighters remembered coming to our house for both the our carbon monoxide incident and for my post-surgery suspected blood clot.

Grandma came to visit too and Miss H got her to draw castles.


It was fun to watch them draw together 🙂

Then we went to a really fun pumpkin patch party. The girls had a blast and we got a nice pumpkin for our porch!
