Well, we are in P'Cola, having a great time. The highlight of the trip so far has been the survivor game we surprised Sara with for her 40th bday. We had 2 days of great fun and challenges. Nancy actually ended up the "Ultimate Survivor". Who would have known that she would end up so tough? ha

Well, gotta run to work now, but just wanted to update. I have about a thousand pics uploading now and will have to organize it when I get home tonight, so it will be easier to look at. It is kind of crazy and mixed up right now.
Til later, Lorie

Okay… today is over and it was quite a day. The guys didn’t finish as well in the land obstacle course as they would have liked, but they still did well. They did much better in the swim obstacle, taking 1st place in the event. You can see in the picture how happy they were!! At this point they are in 9th place overall. Of course, they would like to be in better position, but most of the teams in the top 10 are very close. They should do well in the orienteering event tomorrow. We are leaving around 6:30 to make sure we don’t miss them taking off. They really don’t leave until 8AM from where ever they take them and we hope they will be done by 10:30AM. They will also have to do grenade throwing, map distance reading and one other thing tomorrow that is worth points. Keep your fingers crossed.
I have made more friends again this year. I have remet some from
We may skip the big Gala Ball on Sat. night and just go into
Well, will write more later. Love to all. Remember pictures are at

I will post a pic tonight of them with their guns. Though I was unable to go, John was a good boy and took his camera. I have taught him well.
We went to grocery store today to buy them peanut butter and jelly and bread to have in their room. They get food, but the bread is very hard and it is not quite enough to fillup our growing
American boys. The PB is oily and not very sweet, but it will do just fine.
The Italians won their game in the World Cup last night and they cleebrated into the night. I kept getting woke up by the honking, yelling and police sirens. They were very happy!!!
The men really look at all the women as you walk by. Not discreet at all. We are kind of getting used to it. It is kind of funny. I think they are getting used to seeing the American women whipping all around.
John and team are napping right now and then we are going to go look at the course for tomorrow. They are getting themselves pshyched up.

I made it to
The three wives went to
Tonight was opening ceremonies. Tomorrow John shoots. Thursday is the obstacle course. Friday is the orienteer day. Grant, John and Larry are on one team. They should do real well. Larry is a big guy like John and is very athletic. Darryl is on another team with Joel and Brian. I think they will be a good team too.
Well, will hopefully be able to tell good news tomorrow after the shooting events. Cross your fingers!!!See pictures on my other site. See link to Lorie's Pictures on right.
