A vist to the NC Zoo with The Millers

This past Saturday we had the wonderful experience of meeting up with our friends "The Millers" at the NC Zoo in Asheboro. It was a 2 hour drive for us to both meet in the middle. We drove from Henderson and they came from Vale, NC. The Millers became some of our dearest friends while Calvin was in divinity school and we had not seen them since graduation last May. After a year of ministry in rural churches we had much to catch up on. Katie and I caught up on every mommy topic we could think of from potty training to discipline, the expected and unexpected ventures of becoming an official pastor's wife, plans of potential future kids or lack there of, and recommended blogs and books since we both love learning from other women smarter than us. Katie and I originally bonded over shared pregnancies since her youngest, Isaac, is just 3 months older than Kathleen.

Kevin and Calvin mostly discussed church topics and were surprised and how similar their experiences had been this year. The kids played and enjoyed each others company the entire day. Kathleen did the best she could to climb like Malachi, she followed Eliana wherever she went and asked her to hold her hand on the tram ride back to our picnic lunch. And Kathleen was happy to hug Isaac goodbye after a delicious mexican dinner together.

There are very few friends in this world that you can pick up right where you left off with even after a year has passed. I am so thankful for our time together at the zoo. Families such as the Millers are truly a gift from God to all those they come in contact with.
