We just returned from a trip to Huntsville for a coaching clinic. The best part about the coaching clinic (other than the stuff we learned) was the fact that it was in Huntsville! Not only did Kenny and I get to see friends, but Avery got to meet up with her buddies as well!
I wondered how she would act when she saw her best bud of all, Lawson, who she's known since birth. I was afraid she wouldn't remember him and just play with him like any other child. When we walked in the house to see him, Lawson cried, "A-D!" (His way of saying Avery), and Avery said, "EEEEHHH AHHHH!" (Her way of saying, oh I'm so excited to see you!!!) At least that's how I interpreted it. Needless to say, the two had a blast the whole time we were there. They had several chaperoned dates during the week.
The first night we were in town turned out to be the monthly Bonko night, so I went to be with some girl friends, and Kenny and Jon (Lawson's dad) were in charge of the kids, plus the twins because their dad was out of town. So, the girls had a fabulous time, and an even better time hearing about how the kids played together.
Apparently one time Jon and Kenny couldn't hear the kids anymore, so they went to look for them and found Joshua, Lawson and Avery in the closet giggling and Abby Kate standing in the doorway of the closet babbling for them to get out! Kenny said they all shuffled out still laughing. I guess for now it's okay if they are all in a bedroom together...as long as the door isn't shut!
What a fun trip. I look forward to the next time they can all play together!
