This is where we ended 2012...
2013 started with a visit from Chris' dad and a week tour of Bali.
Then the big flood came through town.
Chris finally took me up to Grassberg!
Friends move to town!
My best buddy moved away... :(
There is no picture, and hardly any words to describe the cave-in that happened in the Underground. It was probably the most challenging event of our lives. 28 people lost their lives. Chris and his crews spent eight, very difficult days, finding and digging out the trapped men. We will never forget!
However, life goes on...
The kids and I flew back to the States for the summer. We left the boys and Gabby at Grandma's and Grandpa's. Then...
Mersades an I took a trip to Getmany!!
The boys stayed with dad and were corrupted! ;)
I had my 20 year class reunion!
The girls and I "ran" a charity race.
Mersades was confirmed!
Mersades started boarding school in Malaysia!
Boys went on a school trip to Boreno.
"Only child" Gabby got her picture with Santa.
Two more dear friends moved away!
Our team won 2nd place in the Underground golf tournament!
Chris picked Mersades up from boarding school. He brought her to Singapore so we could get her visa to get back to Tembagapura. We saw a play, Lightseeker, while there.
All the kids back together in Tembagapura.
Ready to go to the Underground's New Years party.
There is so much to be thankful for. God has truly blessed us with so many adventures and wonderful people whom we have met along the way! We will never forget His goodness and mercy in 2013.
God bless you, my dear family and friends, in 2014! You all are special in your own way and we are so thankful you all are in our lives!
Happy New Year!
