From my journal dated June 16, 2002:
Another “first.” I hate these “firsts.” They’re not like the fun ones – first baby steps, first house, first date, first to graduate. It doesn’t seem like there are any fun firsts left – they all seem painful.
After church, we went out to breakfast with Jenna. After she and Eric went to work, Joe called John MacFarlane to see if they wanted to go see a movie with us. Janice was out of town, but John met us for an early show.
You know, it’s a small thing for him to go to a movie with us. We didn’t really do anything else but go to a movie together, but it’s so nice to have someone do something with us! It just makes the day not seem so long!
We ran into Tom Sutton there, too. He gave me the biggest hug and asked about Jason getting his diploma from the college. It was nice to be around someone who doesn’t shy away from us or from talking about Jason.
