A visit with Beth W.

Beth W. probably deserves an award as "former JBC member who traveled the farthest to attend the reunion." Beth, Lauren, and Emily flew from San Diego!

We haven't seen each other in three years, and we talked so much, my vocal cords were aching by Sunday afternoon.

Beth and her girls met us at our motel, and we decided to get lunch to go from Ruby Tuesday and eat by the pool.

While waiting for our friends, Sam and Marley swam:

And the girls read:

Then Beth, Emily, and Lauren arrived and for Beth and me, it was like we'd just seen each other a few days ago. For the girls, the re-acquaintance process took a few minutes, but by Sunday you'd not know that they had spent years apart.

Aren't they cute together? Although Beth and I met and knew each other long ago (1989, at Community Bible Church in Beaufort, South Carolina), our girls didn't meet until Beth and I met again in Jacksonville, at JBC in 1995. Lauren and Sarah were both 4, Joan was 3, and Emily was 2. Now Sarah and Lauren are 16, Joan is 14 - almost 15, and Emily is 14.
