CJD and I have had our fair share of adventures together. The first time I met her she was 4 years old, hiding behind her dad's legs. He brought her into the office to pick up forms to sign up her older brothers for 4-H. CJD wouldn't talk to me.
In the mean time we became great friends. It was always a great day when CJD would stop by the office for a visit.
This was one of my favorite adventures that we went on together. A fancy dinner out for her birthday and she asked if we could take our American Girl dolls with us. Since I didn't have one, she brought one for me.
Oh wait! Space Camp was one of my favorite adventures with CJD. That was a trip of a lifetime and I was so blessed to have gotten to experience it with her and 50 other junior high youth. ;) How many friends can say they flew a space shuttle mission together, experienced a mission control emergency and lived to tell about it?
I'm not quite sure how many 4-H Shows we went through together. Was it 10? Or 11?
This is one of my favorite photos from my M-P 4-H days.
I am looking forward to many more game nights and basketball games and graduation parties and all of the new adventures we will go on together.
Happy Birthday sweet friend!
