Here's one I'll have to put in EmJ's journal!
Emmeline has a friend-boy here who is moving in a few days. On the way home from preschool the other day, he was upset because the other boys told him that they weren't his friends anymore because he was moving. Emmeline said, "It's okay, Chase, even though you're moving I'm still your friend." She's so sweet! Sweet enough that this boy wants to name his baby sister Emmeline! I love it. Perhaps EmJ would have come out of her shell anywhere, but meeting Chase seems to have been a big part of her transformation. For that reason, alone, I'm glad we moved here.
