And Then There Were Two

Our son, Joe, doesn’t have to return to college in Rochester, Minnesota, until August 21 (classes begin the 25th), but since we cannot afford to drive him up there, he rode back to Minnesota on Monday night with his girlfriend, Elizabeth Ulbrech of Winona. He will stay with her family until it is time to move back to college. This leaves only me (Charlie) and my wife (Wendi) at home (with our three cats), so it will be fairly quiet here.

Joe and Elizabeth got to spend plenty of time together this summer. After staying here at home with us for nearly all of May and June, Joe camped with Elizabeth’s family for Independence Day weekend and then stayed in Minnesota long enough to attend the Sonshine Music Festival in Willmar, Minnesota from July 14–17. He and Beth returned here on July 27; both of them helped (a lot!) with our yard sale.

Our love and prayers are with both of them as well as with Elizabeth’s family.

Some of the visits to and from Minnesota are listed below, taken from our Family Journal; this may not be complete but will serve to give an idea, at least.
