Two years ago during a disaster recovery exercise for work, I brought back both friends from Anna to Kansas with us to spend a week after my son had spent a week with them. Shortly after that, one friend moved to Idaho. Last year we only had the one friend, but this year the Idaho kid's parents surprised all three of them by coordinating two full weeks - a week in Texas and a week in Kansas - with his childhood buds. Today, we make the halfway trip to Oklahoma City to return them.

It really does seem sometime that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
