Forever Friends

We have some sad news to share. Well, sad for us. Our bestest of friends, Ellie and Nolan (and soon to be Kate's best friend in June, Baby Roberts #3) moved. We shared a last hurrah a couple of weeks ago at our favorite spot, Noah's Ark. I've known Ellie since I entered this world. She got here first, I followed 5 weeks later, so our moms tell us. Grant knew 6 months without Nolan, but who really remembers their first 6 months of life? So for Grant, it's as if he's known Nolan his whole life. Mrs. Kim told Mommy that upon entering the nursery at a new church the Roberts were visiting in their new city, Nolan asked Mrs. Kim, "where's Grant?" Yep, that's how tight us kids are. Thankfully, Mommy tells us we can visit them in their new house. It's like driving to Grandmama's and Grandaddy's. That's not too long. I've got lots to catch up on with my friend Ellie. And Grant, well, he's hoping to find solace in Nolan regarding potty training. Hopefully Nolan can encourage Grant to press on in this endeavor. Even though our bestest friends have moved, it's not the end. No, I like to think of it as a new beginning in the next chapter of our friendship. Doesn't it say somewhere that "absence makes the heart grow fonder? (I'm well read)?" I think it's true. So, here's to the next chapter of our incredible friendships. We love you Ellie and Nolan...and baby #3...who we most certainly believe is a just has to be.
