Pen-pal visit!!

So. . .this post was supposed to be up a while ago, but...life. ;) Well, anyway, here it is now! :D       
About four weeks ago, Faith P. emailed me and said that their family was planning a trip west, and on their way home they would be coming through Wichita!! I was so excited!! We weren't sure exactly how/if everything would work out for us to meet,  but we were both praying that it would!
Our moms started emailing trying to figure out all the little details and then, on October 2nd, after weeks and days and then finally hours of counting down, we were able to FINALLY meet!! 
After months of emailing, chatting exchanging stories, doing research together and being completely crazy (well, okay, maybe not completely ;) we were finally able to meet! 
They didn't have a lot of time, so our families met at an ice cream shop and spent an hour and a half together. We had such an amazing time and I wish it could have been longer, but I'm so thankful it worked out! God is so good! :D 
Here are some pictures we took just before they left.

SO glad we were able to meet this sweet family! Sorry for the reflection, the flash on the camera was supposed to be off. . 
.apparently it wasn't. ;)
Oops, we weren't looking at the camera. . .

Ahh, there we go! Now we're looking in the right direction. Faith and I! So, SO excited we were able to meet in person!!! 

Our moms! A.K.A the people who made it possible. ;) 
Mom took this picture as we were saying goodbye. They weren't able to stay very long, but I'm so thankful it all worked out! I've said that a lot, haven't I? B-) 
So, yeah. We had a wonderful time together and we've all decided that we need to take a trip out to North Carolina to visit them sometime. We had a wonderful time of fellowship and. . .yeah.  Thanks for the visit, Faith!! :)
