First we visited the Cowdens in Seattle. Both the girls are living with Twila and Gary at present. Here are pictures of Amy and John and their two little boys, and of Rachel.
From there we went through Acme on the way to the Kaplans near Bellingham. We had to take pictures of our old house... and the little yellow transparent apple tree -- still quite small.
Driving through Acme...
The old church and school building (vacant)
The Kaplans took us to see Duane and Ruby Cooper (our former pastor from Acme). They live in Bellingham now and seem well. When Jim was taking the picture of all of us, Duane requested that we try to make it look like he isn't shorter than all of us....
We also visited Julie and Dave Mitchell,
It was a fun week-end. Things have sure changed since our Acme days!! -- mostly all for the better.
