I love her.
She's moving. And man alive, am I pretty dang sad about it.
Three years ago I noticed this mom walking back and forth from the school, past our corner, she had three boys that looked about my three boys' ages. So one day I walked up to her and just started blabbering on. She looked pretty confused...who is this strange chatty women? But from that first awkward interaction eventually grew one of my most cherished friendships.
I'm so grateful for the last couple years that I've got to chat after school at the park with her, or let our boys run wild down at Popson, or sent texts on bad days knowing the other will understand and offer empathetic encouragement. Her boys are so good. Just good natured, good hearted, good good good boys and I'm sad my boys won't get to continue to benefit from their good influences on a daily basis.
But, you'd hafta move a lot farther away than Medicine Hat to get rid of the Bretzkes!!! You can bet we'll be planning visits and keeping in touch with you! Our dear, wonderful friends.
So glad the Lord brought you into my life!
I'm also glad you came out for the Canada Day parade so I could get some pics of us and our boys together:)

Sometimes when your babies are cranky and you had a bad night you just need your mom.
I love being out in Glenwood. And I love that my kids do too.
Missing Aaron, but how cute are all these Bowen cousins?!?!?

"WipeOut" and thought it was soooo funny.
It was a good day. I love my family. I love that we live in Canada. As we drove past Cardston I was telling my kids how when I see Old Chief and the temple I feel at home. I'm grateful that grumpy nights can still become good days.
