Best Friends Forever aka BFF's

This is Amanda and I in the 10th grade. (96)
We have much more embarrassing photos of us but they are all in the attic and I am to lazy to go up and get them. This is what I had on hand.

Us 10 years later at Amanda's wedding (July 06)

This is us 1 1/2 years later with our girls. (Jan 08)

HOLY COW, Did anyone else notice how in 1 1/2 years (from one picture to the next) I became old? WOW 2 kids is really been rough on me. Luckily with 2 kids comes the "Who has time to care" attitude. Nobody is looking at me anymore anyways....mainly because I am at home afraid to leave my house with 2 of them. They out number me and they really like to have melt downs at the same time.

Back to the point.....

Amanda and I have been friends since the 5th grade. We have been through so many milestones together. We sang in the 6th, and 8th grade talent show together, we played softball together in middle school and high school, we were in school plays together, we roomed together on I think every class trip we went on, we went on mission trips together, we went to college together, we lived in the same suite together our freshman year, we played soccer together in college, we were in eachothers weddings, and now we are having babies together. God has blessed my life so much by putting a friend like Amanda in it. Some friends truly are forever.
