First Wave of...

GoOd-bYes! There is nothing like feeling left behind. That is exactly how we felt as we have had to say good-bye to some great friends as they have now graduated dental school and moved away to try and "make it" in the real world. This happens every year, and each time I think it will be easier the next time, it gets that much harder. This year was a hard hit for us. More so than the others because Zach became pretty close to the kids that lived here, and actually understood what it meant to have friends. We are a week out and he is doing surprisingly well. He still misses them, and notices that there aren't as many kids outside to play with, but he is quickly adapting to the change. I don't have a great picture of all the kids that actually left, but here are a few...

Here is Zach with his favorite friend Camden...they're just two weeks apart in age.

Here is the love...


And some clips of the funny things they do when they get together and play. It is sad that they will probably not remember this after a year or so.

Zach obviously thought he was moving too. Alabama? It's just what was fresh in his mind because Justin and I just got back from there. We still have a few more moves to go, meaning some more getting used to the way life throws change at you. Hopefully we will be missed too!

That is so sad. I hope zach finds another little friend as special as her. Hang in there. we are going through that right now too with moving away from the ward we have been in for almost two years. It is the longest we have stayed in one place our entire marriage. We will miss everyone from our apartment complex. but we are only moving a short distance away, but will be in a new ward.

We miss you guys! So far the 'real world' is far to be desired. Not so fun... at least not yet.
