My friend Meagan decided to finally brave the country roads and visit us last week. Some background: My friend grew up in a small town just as I did but she has since moved to the big city. She has a beautiful home with the white picket fence on a cul-de-sac which is exactly where she has always wanted to be. Me....I live in a old farmhouse with a VERY crummy road...which is exactly where I want to be...except for the crummy road part.
As her and her kids are getting farther and farther from the city the kids are getting more and more nervous. 'Mom! Why is the road so bumpy?! MOM! Where are the houses? Mom! Are we lost?' I think they were a little culture shocked. But they soon learned a huge backyard, water pistols, a sprinkler, swing set and chickens make for a fun afternoon.
