My friend is coming. She will probably be here in the next half hour. Her name is Beth and we have been friends since 1993. We were both music majors in college and active in the same campus ministry. We had some power struggles in the early years (thanks to a overly large ego of yours truly) but we made it through to become close friends.

Neither of us are big phone talkers. We live about 7 hours apart (depending on traffic through Chicago) and we can go months without talking. Yet, the few times a year we see each other, we get together and talk as if no time had passed at all and we are always laughing and crying together within 8 hours.

Hopefully, while she is here, we will be creating a blog site for her (with Deb's help) and I will introduce you soon.

We both have two boys, with no more for either of us in the future. They are very similar in ages and my boys have been bouncing off the walls for days knowing they are coming. they will be staying until Thursday. I am sure I'll be posting lots of pictures as the week progress.

Here are a few shots over the past couple of years of the boys playing together.

Have a great Monday.

Welcome, Beth! I hope you all have a great week and lots of fun! :)

I hope you have a lot of fun with your friend. I have a friend that lives 3 hours away and like you, I'm not a huge phone talker so I never talk to her on the phone. We usually talk through e-mails. I wish we talked more often. She's my best friend from college and my oldest and her youngest are the same age and get along well.

That's awesome that you've been able to maintain your friendship over the years. And I bet your little ones have a blast playing together!

Your pictures look like you guys always have a ton of fun. Have a great week with them. I look forward to being "introduced" to her and seeing pics from the week.

Great pictures of all the boys playing together! That's so nice your friend is coming to visit and has boys to hang out with your boys.

I'm not a big phone person either.
