On Wednesday, I was thankful that my kids have good friends. I invited both a friend for C and S, and their buddies who came over were such nice, well behaved kids. They stayed for dinner and we had such a great afternoon, both sets playing their own thing and not bugging each other at all. S hasn't ever been as social as she is this year, and it's been fun to have her getting more into "Friends." She kept bumping into people as we trick or treated that she knew, and she would tell me, "Wow, I just have so many friends at this school!" They have welcomed her with open arms, and I'm so, so thankful that she's settled in and happy.
