Many Goodbyes

The last week we were in Murfreesboro was filled with too many goodbye lunch/suppers! We are so blessed to have many wonderful friends. We already miss them all like crazy. I had to share pictures from our various meal time goodbyes.

My sweet friend Jaime drove all the way from Lewisburg to shop with me and say goodbye. Even though we haven't lived in the same town for 3 years, it's still sad because she's now more than an hour away!

Mrs. Donna (the BEST foster mom/Northfield EA in the world), Laura (the best ESP teacher in the world-and great classroom helper--she helped me move, arrange, and decorate 3 classrooms at Northfield!) and me at Penn Station.
The Tenpenny's are wonderful, wonderful people-they are East Main friends. Mr. Tenpenny taught Wesley how to make wooden pens and many other amazing wooden things. He helped Wesley with our coffee table and I don't know what we're going to do without him. It'll take a lot longer to get furniture now! Mrs. Tenpenny is also fabulous-she and I patiently waited together MANY nights after church while the two guys talked about making things forever!
The Vicks have been like our Murfreesboro grandparents for the last 4-5 years. They have hosted our group of young adults in their home for supper and Bible study countless times. They take such great care of us and we are really going to miss them. Here's Geoff, David, Mr. Vick & Wesley.
Myself, Brandi, & Mrs. Vick

Tonight we met our East Main group at Miller's Grocery for supper. They surprised us with this great $money$ plant. They claim this is the way it grew, but I have my doubts. They are such special people and we dearly miss them. They did way too much as you can see, but it is greatly appreciated. I told Wesley we'd just buy them all nice gifts when he graduates! So, get ready, just 4 short years......

Wesley, Lindsey, & myself at Miller's.

Brady & Leyton--just 6 days apart--we can already tell they are going to be best friends.

Andy & Brian with their baby boys!

Our great East Main group of friends--Suzanne, Brady, & Andy, Dave & Mikey, Leslie, Leyton & Brian, Christy, Kristy (with Ryder in her belly-we missed Cody-he had to rest up for work tonight), Lindsey, myself, Wesley, Tisha & Chris
Well, I know that was a LOT of pictures of our friends, but they are so special, I think they definitely deserved some blog love. Hope everyone's doing well. I'm photographing my college friend Dinah's wedding reception tomorrow, so I'll post those soon!
