Some days it doesn't take much to motivate my girls to get their school work completed. Today it was a phone call from an "old buddy" inviting us to lunch at her house. She even took the girls' sandwich orders over the phone so they would be ready when we arrived!
We've known this family since the girls were about 4 years old. They live only 20 minutes away, but we never seem to have the time to just sit and visit. Today we made time. The girls plowed through school while I did the chores. Then we took off! We had so much fun eating strawberries, sipping sweet tea and catching up. The girls had a picnic outside, rode horses, played dress-up and games while we moms looked at pictures, exchanged curriculum ideas and just caught up on each other's lives. Once again I've vowed to not let so much time lapse between visits. Life is too short to miss out on days like today.
