When I was running cross country in high school, one of my best buddies on the cross country team was Kate. We saw each other several time during college (usually at our high school's annual Turkey Trot and once at a college track meet) but then sort of lost track after that. Enter Facebook. Ah, social media and a happy ending. We reconnected and I was really looking forward to seeing Kate in person again and meeting her two little girls.
We had a great playdate at her house, and I really enjoyed catching up. We were friends in high school, but we're a long way from high school, now. Good news? It seems we've grown into adults with a lot of parallel interests. It also helps that our girls are just the right age to enjoy playing together.
Claire, Lise and Sierra on the swingset.
