but i am going to start back a few days, b.c thats where i want to put some photos in. on the 4th, mom dad and i went to the Jukins house for an afternoon I.D.P. (independence day party). It was pretty great, though i didnt take my bathing suit so ended up sweating to the point of grossness. but besides the jukins and us, the Reeds were there, as well as the Badgetts and another old(er) woman that i did not quite recognize. i actually talked (longer than 5 min) to james badgett-- ive known him all my life, and we have never talked longer than that before.. strange, especially knowing how much i tend to talk. but it was cool getting him to tell me about his gf (she sounds really great) , and his life at the moment.. aka, more about his gf and some school. lol then after we had stayed there for a while, we headed over to the Thelens house for some visiting w. them , their friends, and Mr. Marshall Foster, who was in town over the beginning of the week, until the 5th, for a speaking engagement he had with American Vision . we actually went to hear the first night (mom dad and i) -- it was truly mind capturing! it was on the 6 great terrors of world history, and how they have been overcome -- w.o.w. seriously fantastic. so at the party, i was privileged to show some of my jamestown photos to him and mr. DeMar and his wife, and they loved them! hoorah! maybe they were just being kind, but i do think that mr. foster wouldnt have wanted to see more if he was just "being polite". so i feel very honored indeed that i had that privilege. a little while later, i was introduced to Georgia Williams-- Praise the Lord! this girl..well, i cant really call her a girl, b.c she is older than i am, and she seems very grownup and ladylike, so i guess i should call her a lady, b.c woman sounds too formal.. anyways, this lady is one of the coolest, kindest, funniest persons i know! so we decided to go on a walk through the Thelens neighborhood. here are (most of) the pics:
