We had the best kind of visitors on Monday! Our friends that used to live in our neighborhood, but now live in Wyoming showed up at our front door, completely unexpected! It was so exciting to them. Emma, here in the picture, was Mia's first "real" friend. When she got her hair cut, she wanted to look like Emma. She started wearing skirts around because Emma wore skirts. Mia was so sad when Emma moved and asked us nearly daily if we could move "just one more time" so that we could live by Emma. Mia still likes to draw pictures for Emma (if only her mom would mail them...) and talks about her all the time. Funny thing is, when they got here, Mia turned shy or something and just stared at her for a while.

It was SUCH a good surprise and we are so glad that they stopped in for a visit.

What a fun surprise. I wasn't aware that they had moved. Is Mia still pretty sad about it?

I think she has come to grips with it, but she does worry that all of her friends will move.

She told me one day shortly after they moved, "I think Lillian will move before school starts and I won't know anyone."

Hi, great photo! Thank you for letting us share time with you. It was so fun. Hopefully, we can visit again soon. Have a great school year Mia!
