Our friends returned one of our daughters who had been spending the week with them. We did a big turkey dinner to feed the crew (our 11 + 7 of their 8) then went for walks to Whiffen Spit or up the hill to the water tower (different groups to different places) and/or played a friendly game of soccer to burn off some of the calories. It was The Dads & Anders agains the rest. I asked Anders if he was the goalie, but he said “Well, we didn’t really need a goalie because the dads were sooooo good!” They all had a hoot, anyways. And we always enjoy the time to share and visit with our Life & Death Friends. We’ve been through so much together, we’re Friends Forever.
And us moms always try and sneak away for a few minutes to connect without little ones in tow. Such a nice treat.
