New friends are funner in the pool

There's a family with a daughter from China that we see all over town. We run into them at parks, Bible study, stores, restaurants, even once in a hotel. I've spoken to the mom and the big sister a few times and finally just invited them over this week so we could get to know each other better. They live just a hop, skip, and a jump away, so it only makes sense.

I left a comment on the big sis' blog last week asking them to come over, then we ran into them at lunch Sunday. It was funny because little AC, their youngest, ran over to us, cornered K and announced her name. As K tried to escape, AC followed until K backed up into me, "Moooomm, there's a little girl following me...." At that point I spied AC, found the family, and we made plans to swim at our pool.

So today I got to meet Pam and her little girl and we watched all the girls play while we told our adoption stories and just had a fabulous time getting to know each other. Pam and I really have a lot in common, besides just going to all the same places!

K was smitten with the persistent little AC and even shared her beloved goggles.

L was rather more interested in AC's cool toys, but she (mostly) played nice. She spent most of her time without her floaties in the shallow end, so you know she enjoyed having a playmate!

Isn't AC a doll? She's so pretty! The cool thing is she's getting a sister sometime this fall who's coming from L's hometown!

I'm so glad we've found a new playmate even if we are moving a little further away at the end of the month. At least we'll still see them every week at Bible study this fall!

We had a WONDERFUL time, too! Thank you so much for having us over to swim. AC NEVER lasts for 3 hours at the pool, so your pool was mighty special!I loved getting to know you better, and I hope we can continue getting our girls together!
