A sad anniversary
This Sunday, June 8, we remember the life of our little Joshua. Hard to believe it's been 7 years since his drowning in Lake Jocassee.  Our lives are richer for having known him and now having him as our intercessor in heaven but we sure do miss him.
Here is at 1 1/2 yrs. dressed up for a Revolutionary War Living History day at Walnut Grove Plantation in Spartanburg,SC.

And a happy anniversary
as we celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. Life hasn't always been happy or easy but our love for each other and Jim's sense of humor has brought us to this point more in love than the day we married! Life is grand together!


  1. Lori: We have been thinking about you and your family! We had the Home School Campout a few weeks ago. You guys sure were missed. We are praying for your family and wish you all the best! Hugs and Love. Oliver & Sharen Kaska

  2. Thank you for the prayers! As you can see we are doing well here in Chile. We miss you all and love hearing from you and we sure do look forward to your comments.

  3. Lori -- tight hugs sent to you. I wish I could give them to you in person.
    We just finished 3 days of training for the HS group I belong to -- so that I can tutor again next year. It is wonderful because it pays a small salary -- which more than covers what I spend on HS supplies and the extra curricular activities. <--- I just have to remind Eric of that periodically. =) It is smoldering here, which I guess means it is starting to get fairly chilly there. :) I hope you are still loving your grand adventure.
