{Exit 109, Halfway}

Exit 109, Savannah, Georgia is halfway between our house and Lex's best friend since she was 6 years old.
Since we have moved here we have had the luxury of being able to meet @ that exit (or on a good day @ the awesome Mall there!). Then the girls can go home for the weekend or whatever with each other. Tonight, with the long weekend, Ashley is @ our house. Lex is so excited because since our move she has really struggled to make any close friendships here and the one that she has made seems to maybe be hitting a few "bumpy" spots. It really bites being a military brat. I never was one, but I really see with her how difficult it is for her and she has really tried to let it all go, even though after we initially moved here she was never going to forgive us for moving her from Virginia. I really am seeing a lot of the pain from the move in trying to adjust to an area where there is such a different ideology and their priorities are so different than what she is used to. It is so hard to try to fit in. I love that she can actually say that she has maintained a friendship from first grade and they get along so well. Its going to be a fun weekend. I can already hear them chatting away and just being the silly girly girls that they are.....bringing back those days when they were Brownies and played with American Girl dolls. {P.S. If you want a good laugh, click on "Tracy" in my "online favs", her blog regarding Browzilla is absolutely hillarious and she is also doing a poll on her blog that you should definitely give your input on, it could be a matter of life and death!!!}
