Annie Kate has a buddy named Ben. We go to Ben's church and Annie Kate goes to his school. Ben was one of the first families we met when we came to town that very first night. They and another couple made us dinner and just an hour after we pulled into town from Tennessee. Ben's dad is a cousin to one of my roommates from BYU. He and his wife are just one of a kind and such a pleasure to know.
There is something about Annie Kate and Ben - it is like they were meant to be friends. She always looks out for him and school kind of like he is her younger brother. I wonder if it is the first kid she met when she moved here.
Ben's awesome parents initiated a Cystic Fibrosis 5K in our neighborhood a few years ago. Two of their children have Cystic Fibrosis. Yesterday was the annual walk and I was just amazed by the incredible support. It was so fun to be able to walk with some of our best friends.
It is days like this when I just feel like our neighborhood is so dreamy and feel so lucky to have the opportunity to live in a place like this.
Annie Kate was exhausted. We had a great day that ended with probably the best ward party I have ever been to - my kids loved it and they were happy and not climbing all over me. The day started with attending our other friends son's baptism and I went to bed feeling blessed to be associated with really amazing buddies!
