Gretchen's best friend from Kindergarten moved away a few years ago to a suburb closer to the city. We don't see her very often but Gretchen insists that she is STILL her best friend. While I am dubious about it, I will say that whenever these girls are together they just seem to pick up where they last left off. That is true friendship in my opinion so I hope they keep it up! The party was ice skating which Gretchen had never done before but she was so determined to skate the whole night that she kept at it. I was really proud of her!
