The other night I met a couple of childhood friends for dinner.
Kristine is on the far left and Lauri is in the middle.
We met in 4th grade when I moved to 9th Place in Mesa, AZ.
Kristine just happened to be across the street and a few houses down from me.
We were instant best friends.
Lauri was in my ward, Mesa 25th.
Love that ward!
We all were in the same 4th, 5th and 6th grade classes.
We've kept in touch throughout the years.
Sometimes it's only a Christmas card.
Other times we get to see each other at birthday and Christmas lunches.
Lauri lives out of state so her appearances are more rare.
Kristine's mother was like my second mother.
She taught me everything I know about how to manage a home.
I love that woman!!
