Happy Birthday Joshua

Ralph and I want to wish our son, Joshua, a very happy 23rd birthday today.  This picture was the first birthday he celebrated in Hungary - #6.  We passed out cupcakes to all his friends in the kindergarten and he received kisses from all the girls.  He was not too happy about that!  We are very proud of the young man he has become.  If you are traveling through the Greensboro, NC airport look for Officer Stocks on patrol.

Happy Mother's Day

 Taking a personal moment here to say Happy Mother's Day to my mom - pictured on the left with my siblings and me. 

Living in another culture faraway from extended family has given me a deeper appreciation for all those who have played maternal roles in the lives of my children and other children that needed a hug or a word of encouragement.  Thank you.
Tyler, Amy, & Josh
