Friendship... is not something you learn in school. 
But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship,
 you really haven't learned anything...

We met through a real estate transaction.  A Norwegian couple and a little girl.  Soon they had bought one of our houses and very fast we became good friends.
Madeline, is just the friendliest little thing.  Not even knowing us she immediately liked us and we her.  She  loves to hug and kiss us and she loves jumping all over Arvid.  Like my nieces and nephews, Arvid is always a hit with little kids. Everyone love him.  Can't wait to see little Aleah and him together.
We have gotten to know them very well and have been seeing them quite often these last few months.  We have introduced them to quite a few of our favorite restaurants and have gone out together to some of those. Now like us they also love Kaluz, Flanigan's and PF Chang's just to name a few.  Together we have been to these, not once but a few times and hopefully will be going out again this coming week.
As for music, they also enjoy the Blues.  As they said, "will have to have our mother-in-law baby sit so we can go out and have a proper evening out".

Yes, we really enjoy their friendship and now that they will be soon leaving for Norway we will miss them.  Friends make your life so much more enjoyable.  Unlike many family members, friends never judge you, get into your business nor want anything from you other than friendship.  Friends don't only take, they actually give as well...

There has never been a time Arvid and I have not had a good time with friends...

Remember, you don’t need a certain number of friends, 
just a number of friends you can be certain of...
