We hosted a big party this weekend and had to get rid or our kids. Our very dear friends, Emily and Jon, offered to take them for a sleepover. There were five boys in all, her eight and four year olds and mine. Emily, you might say, is a generous and brave soul.
All my kids came home saying what a fantastic time they had. Our friends have a 6 by 6 foot surface in their treehouse (built by Jon himself) and all five kids slept there. No one was cold, reports my oldest.
Emily reports that all five were up before dawn, 4:30 am to be exact. And she managed to return my boys with a smile on her face.
Now that is true friendship. Thanks Em!
