Here they are back in 2009.
The girls kept in touch through technology, Skype, Instagram, Snapchat. They've been wanting a sleepover for years, but it's hard when they live 2 hours away. Every time her family was coming up here to Prescott last summer, we were gone camping or Canada. It just never worked out. But then, they came up Thursday for the night. A didn't think it would work out at first since Emily still had school on Friday. But, all of Emily's grades were in by Thursday and Friday was a half day, so they go to each class for like 22 minutes. I figured, she could miss it.
So, these two sweet 12 year old friends who met when Emily was 4, got to have their first sleepover.
I'm so glad they've been able to maintain this friendship over the years.
