FFF-“That’s What Friends Are For”


Today’s theme is friendship.  For the most part, I think my kids all have pretty nice friends.  It’s easy to guide them towards nice kids while they are young but as they become teenagers, it gets a little tougher influencing who they “hang out” with!  We’ve been lucky with some great friends that stick by our children through thick and thin!

Greta’s friends have seemed to multiply since we put up the trampoline! At least I know where my kids are hanging out though!

Ricky has some great friends who have been in school with him since age 3! Mark and Ricky played together earlier this week at our house…

These two are the best buddies of all! I was just noticing that there is almost always a hockey stick in every picture we take!!  We are a hockey family…even in the summer!!

Peter, being the youngest one who is stuck at home with mom day in and day out, doesn’t have many opportunities to play with friends.  He’s excited even to play “house” when little girls come over to our home!

what wonderful friends! I worry about the choice of friends when Maya gets older, but just hope that she keeps the nice ones. Like you beter to have them at your house, I might have to get a trampoline when she gets older.......

My mom got a trampoline for us when we were in high school (much to the chagrin of the neighbors) and I think it certainly served its purpose - including sleeping over under it!

Sweet pictures of your kiddos! Zoo soon?

It's great that soo many kids like to come over and play! You must be the "cool" house in the neighborhood!

I am so thankful as our oldest reaches that "pre-teen" stage that she has great friends, too!

Loved all your pics!
