another weekend visitor

Remember how I mentioned last month that I was sad that Jenny couldn't join Alison and me for the weekend?  Well, she came up this weekend instead.  I found some other cute pictures, too.  (Funny that in all the pictures we're on the same sides!).

Although we've known each other since 1st grade, Jenny and I didn't really become best friends until 4th grade when we both played flute in the band.  It's really funny to think back on the fact that she and I had a couple years that we fought all the time, but other than that, from 4th grade through high school we were best friends.

From Jenny I learned the art of talking on the phone.  We'd spend hours talking about everything and nothing.  During college when we were both back during the summer we'd even talk for a while on the phone before I drove over to her house to hang out and talk some more.  We also refined the art of writing and passing notes.  We folded them in complicated ways and had secret, coded nicknames.  I wonder if kids still write and pass notes anymore or just text each other.  I'll have to ask my brother about his students.  I can't imagine our multi-paged notes condensed into text messages.

Although Jenny and I don't talk as often as we once did, we've managed to stay in touch throughout the years.  I've lost touch with a lot of my other friends, but she Alison and I have made a point of not losing track of each other. 

We had a great weekend.

I can't wait to do it again.  And next time I hope both Jenny and Alison will be able to make it.
