Pics of the Past

This was my senior prom picture from 1994. Like my lovely huge puffy sleeves?!! Matthew has an awkward look on his face. Prom was rather strange. We danced once, then just sat at the table not knowing what to do. Then another girl asked him to dance so he did, and left me sitting there! Little did he know he was dissing his future wife! We had more fun later bowling, where both of us got our highest scores ever- Matthew's was 235! I just found this picture which has been lost for the last 13 years! Matthew kept forgetting to take his home, so I hid it and told him I'd give it to him in 20 years when he would appreciate it more. He romantically answered back, "You won't even know me in 20 years!" Well, there's still 7 years left to go, but after 6 years of marriage and 3 kids, chances are we'll still know each other! (I gave him the picture early!)
This is the group that went to Bella Coola, BC. in 1994 I think. We are all wearing shirts that say "I survived the Bella Coola highway!" That's one of the scarriest roads you can go on. It's several miles of steep, winedy, gravel with a 1000 foot sheer dropoff along one side, and NO gaurdrail! Anyway it was a fun trip. We did a spontanious Vacation Bible School for the kids there. They seemed to respond well to it. Daniel Savala was there leading it. We also did some yard work for the pastor, some visiting and singing on the street.

If I could blot out a decade it would be the 90's. Actually, the years 1991-2003. I'm nostalgic for the 80's.
