pumpkin play!

seriously.... these kids have a life! a group of friends and their sweet families... I am so happy to have met all of these woman and have gotten to know their families... it's a good sense of community as well as family as well as long lasting friendships... so good for these kids to have a constant reminder of having friends... what that's all about... they see us mammas as close friends and our families coming together... enjoying conversations... having bar-b-ques... it's really a lot of fun!

about once every week or so one mamma has a little get-together at their home... sometimes we meet at a playground... sometimes we have a cookout... a beach sunset picnic... it's always something fun, sweet, and always always always memorable!

a lot lately a little thought has been lurking... next year our oldest kiddies all start kindergarten... and although it is reality we just keep getting that lump in our hearts... the sensation to gulp it down and twinkle our eyes to stop the tears.... it feels so good to have each other and to know that we will all go through it that day... we will be strong together and weep together and have a little coffee morning at one of our mamma's house... and surely we will make sure not to wear mascara on that day. our littles can play together... we will miss the big get-togethers with the olders and the littles... but there will be days off and the summers and breaks and sunset picnics... but just little crafty playdates like this... will be a memory... but they will all be tucked in my heart and hopefully the children's as well......

  3. oh, wow, i am a little envious of the group of friends you have, truly. i have many friends that live away or work so we don't have a regular group of friends to meet up with.
    looks like fun! : ) happy weekend kollene!
