I had such a good day today!
My dear friend, Shanna picked me up around 11 and we headed to the new campus of Denver Christian--the school our kids used to attend together--in fact, we met each other on a third grade field trip to the Denver Zoo the first year my family was in Denver after moving from San Diego. We've been good friends ever since. My oldest and her middle were best friends for a couple of years. The school moved a couple of years ago and we've been meaning to visit the new campus for the past year. It is a great school if you are in Denver and looking for a school for your kids.
We found it without trouble and took a tour as if we were prospective parents. The new school building is marvelous--big and bright and open and beautiful. We walked every hallway and ran into teachers our kids had and loved, who sent their love to our five kids (her three and my two). We reminisced about the good times we had at the school. We even saw some students and parents we knew, which was an unexpected treat.
And when the tour was done and our tummies were growling quite loudly, we left and had a huge lunch at Macaroni Grill--a place neither of us had been in years.
It was a terrific day and I am still full. Instead of a meal, I may just eat some yogurt and watch a movie before taking Maddie out and going to bed early (after all, it is dark and getting cold--perfect for an early bedtime!)...
Sweet dreams, friends!
