Summer is here









John and Jimmi at the Quarterdeck

It’s summer now…and boy, can we feel it. Hot and humid here in DC!

Last Sunday, John and I drove up to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, to visit Joyce. It’s about four hours to get up there, but a pretty, green drive. We had a nice visit with him and Carol, and also got to see Carol’s mom, Emma…plus two of Carol’s children came over who we had not met before, Jennifer and Jeff. Nice day of catching up. Joyce seems to be doing pretty well and looked very good. Click here for photos.

We were so happy to get to see Juarez friends on Wednesday! Roger, our NIV Chief, and my favorite local staff supervisor, Juan, were in town for a conference, so we organized a happy hour at Car Pool in Ballston. We had a great turnout, and also got to see two ELO’s from Juarez, Ryan and Kerry. I really miss Juan – he is just super. He’s the proud dad of a new baby, their third, who was born three weeks ago.

It was off to happy hour again on Thursday night, this time a going-away for our good friend Jimmi who is heading to Calgary for her next assignment. Click here for photos. We also took her out for a fun crab dinner at The Quarterdeck on Friday night. The weather was nice enough to sit outside, which was amazing. The Quarterdeck was great – it reminded me of The Oyster Bar in Little Rock.

Saturday morning I drove up to Maryland to get my hair cut by my Druze lady. I got home in time to watch soccer in the afternoon, then we went to visit with our friends Della and Robert who live in this apartment complex. We were in A-100 with Robert; they are going from Santo Domingo to Peru and are here a short time for training. They have the cutest new baby, Indy.
