Old Friends

Over 5 1/2 years ago, Ella started daycare as an infant. We were fortunate that we found such an loving place for Ella (& later the twins) but also that 5 of the 6 kids that started in Ella's infant room stayed at the school for 4 years together. One of her first friends was Hope (above). The girls had a lot of fun together & later Sophie joined the daycare too. The three girls were in the same class at the Montessori together last year until Hope moved to Alaska. It wasn't always smooth sailing with the three amigos last year so I was a little anxious about how the reunion would be.
What a difference a year makes. I was shocked & thrilled that Ella had a ball playing with everyone & that we made it through the night without any tears or hurt feelings. It was so nice to see Hope & her parents & to catch up with old friends & the kids who have since moved on to new schools.
