Everything I ever needed in a group of friends.....
I found in 3 year old Pre-School!
Dear Pre-School Moms,
There is something I want you to know. As the pre-school year comes to an end....be intentional about who you want to keep in touch with over the summer.
There have been many moms walking in and out of the pre-school doors along side you each morning and afternoon. You have spoken briefly to each other on the playground and sat beside each other at special programs. You may not be aware of it now...but some of those moms may be the best friends you will ever find.
When my son was finishing 3 year old pre-school, a small group of moms decided that it would be fun to try to get our little ones together over the summer. A day at the park or an afternoon by the pool....you know just to keep the kids together. The invitation was open to all the children in the class. Four moms and their children attended. We played at the pool, played at the park, and even visited a museum. The next year, we got together on Friday afternoons after the kids got out of pre-school when the weather allowed. The following summer, we headed back to the park, playgrounds and museums, etc...
This summer... our then 3 year old pre-schoolers will be turning 11 and preparing for Middle School...and we will again be heading to the pools and playgrounds. We will also be going on our 4th annual family camping trip together. These 3 pre-school moms are the best friends I could ever ask for...and I almost missed it....I almost walked out of pre-school that last day and never looked back.
Now that our kids are older, they do not all share the same interests and they have new friends, but we, the moms are holding tight to what we found in 3 year old pre-school. Our forever friends.
The four of us...Hilary, Wendy, Me and Rhonda
Our 4 families... camping together last summer.
