"Now and Then"


Jenni and I met Mike and Bobby our first year of EFY when we were all 14 years old! We kind of became friends our first year because we were in the same group, but really became friends when we reunited our second year! So every year after that, we all made sure that we were going to the same one. we would always hope that we would be in the same group again but it never happened. We spent all of our time with them when we could! And all through the year we would still keep in touch and even make visits sometimes. Bobby lived in Portland and Mike lived in Salem so it was a little harder for us to get together very often but when we did, it was so fun! Mike eventually moved to Eugene and it just so happened that he lived right down the street from me and Jenni so we became pretty close with him. We all grew up and did our own thing and pretty soon the boys went on missions. They are both back now and we all met up in Salem for Mike's homecoming a couple of sundays ago! It was SO much fun to see them! I hadn't seen Bobby since my last year of EFY! That's a LONG time! They are both so grown up, not boys anymore. They're real men! hahha i'm so proud of them! It was fun to hear all of their mission stories and just catch up on life! Anyway, here is a picture of us at EFY together. I don't know what year it was but it's fun to see how much we have all changed!
