Friday Photo Flashback




Well it's time for Friday Photo Flashback.

It's where we take our pre-digital photos and showcase them.

Each October (bk*) I'd take juniors and seniors at our church around to Christian colleges. Since I was in my 20s...it was easy to get off work and I didn't mind hanging with kids for a weekend.

One year...while I was wrangling youth a girl ran up to me and started calling out....

"Miss Lorrie... Miss Lorrie..." I really didn't recognize her until she said...
"Loluplorrie!" That's when I realized it was one of the missionary kids (3 girls) that I baby sat many Friday nights while I was college.

She was the youngest and I'd always mess up their names...so I'd started making up silly names when I came over...they seemed to LOVE that! I always called her Rupalendious!

She was now a student at the university we were visiting.
Later that evening...she had me meet some of her friends.
It was so cute...


So here we are, circa 1997...
I'd tell you her name...
but I'm ashamed to say...I still can't remember it!

For more Friday photo fun...check out Alicia's.

Blessings
oh...*bk means before kids

Thanks for stopping by my blog :-) I love your memory! I am still in denial that some of my kids that I babysat are having children of their own....how did that happen! Thanks for sharing!

Alicia said...

LOL...I don't blame you for not remembering her name since you changed it up from the get go!

What a fun time that must have been for you!!!

Both of you looked so beautiful. What a cool story! I am not good at remembering names, either :).

Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a blessed weekend, Lorrie!

I am terrible with names...truly awful. I know I would have done the same thing: been able to tell the entire story and had no idea of her name! I love the picture, though, and how it brings that memory right back to you. And your braids were super cool!
