Little Friends

Some old college friends dropped by for a quick visit this weekend with their little daughter in tow. The last time we saw her she was just a tiny baby in a high chair. Now she's a running, laughing, little friend who's most common phrase seems to be, "I'm happy". When last we met, our own flock wasn't nearly so far along either.

Two things really struck me during our little visit. The first was how much I loved their little girl. Mostly I don't care for other people's kids, but I guess when you have the kind of friends you can pick up where you left off with, their kids just fit right in there too.

The second thing was how well our broods hung out together. They were just all peas and carrots with one another. The big ones chased down the little ones to keep them out of trouble. And the little one's didn't annoy the big ones too much with their grabby hands.

Pat, pat on the backs of all the tall people in this picture. For all the days of wild obnoxious kids and clutter and annoyance, a quick afternoon of peaceful children getting along with each other is a well deserved reward for all the hours put in.
