Because Thursday was a teacher work day, we didn’t have school. Anna had a friend spend the night – a friend who will be moving this summer.
One thing about living in a military community is that people come and go all the time. For the 12 years Dan was in the Army, WE were always the ones leaving, moving 7 times in 12 years … but now that we’ve settled here, we are on the other side.
For two years in a row, Anna has “lost her best friend” … in fact, this summer three of her friends are moving. Last night the reality hit her pretty hard. She had a good cry, and we had a talk about being able to keep in touch with friends who have moved – and about being thankful for the long standing friends who stay. There are many good memories to hold on to like the ones made at Anna’s sleep over this week.
The girls made a chocolate mousse for dessert at church on Wednesday night.
1 pkg (4 svg) chocolate pudding mix
1 1/2 cups cold milk
2 cups cool whip
(you can use fat free cool whip, sugar free pudding, and skim milk if you want to go low calorie – but I don’t!!) 😉
Whisk the pudding mix with the cold milk for 2 minutes.
Add the cool whip.
Stir & serve.
and apparently it can be a lot of fun to make:
