Seven and his girlfriend have been together since they were two years old. For those of you keeping score at home, that's almost six years. That's longer than a lot of marriages!
Her parents haven't exactly told her that we're moving yet because they don't go to the same school and only see each other at church. We're hoping maybe she just won't notice for a while. At least we won't have to break the news until our house sells and at the rate we're going that might never happen.
My future in-laws and I try to arrange "play dates" to get the kids together when we can. Plus, we just like spending time with them because they're fun people. Last Saturday we went bowling with her family and had a blast. Even though Chuck skunked everybody. I blame the shoes. I started out great but then I lost my groove when I nearly lost my shoe. My purple bowling shoes are completely falling apart and I had to use borrowed alley shoes. Blech. Germs.
And, yes, I still have this song running through my mind from the last time we went bowling. It's contagious.
