Here's the sweet group of girls with whom we got to spend a Saturday morning in Kentucky. They learned about the country of Turkey and our lives there. They were all so eager and attentive and friendly to our kids.
Here's my friend Kelly. We taught in the same school way back 16 years ago when I married CC and just before we moved overseas. She and her husband have also served with our organization in Brazil. We've also been able to stay in touch through a moms' email group.
Judge Langford was just about the nicest person you could ever meet. They say he is tough behind the bench, but we only saw his soft side!
Our event took place in a Civil War park. Here's a cannon from that era.
And this enormous anchor and its 20 pound links were stretched across the Mississippi River to hold the Union troops back. I commented to CC (who took this picture) what a great photo he got. He said it was taken about 3 seconds before Big Ben fell off the anchor and scraped up his knees. Oh well, at least he was injured on a piece of Confederate history! Long live the South!
