We are much like you...the quarantine hasn;t really changed a lot of our family time. But we miss going to church and seeing friends at school, etc. It's been sort of surreal here in College Station. Chris just took the kids to go Dewberry picking and this is the FIRST time in over a month that I am home alone. Ahhhh! Happiness!

I'm praying for your heart and asking God to tuck in some special gifts in Denver this summer! We will still be coming up for a wedding in Mid-August, so I hope that we can swing by to say hi or that you and I can grab a bite to eat together. I miss you so much! Love, Holly

Hi, friend! Thanks for the summer plan update! I can tell you like Arizona and the independence you enjoy there!!
Our son had to come home from UNC-Charlotte due to COVID19. He applied for a waiver to be able to stay, but apparently the argument that “nothing ever happens in my hometown. Charlotte is awesome”, is insufficient for the Chancellor to allow you to stay on campus. He had to finish the semester with all of his classes online.
Jerry and I have adjusted from empty nesters to empty nesters who have an adult who shows up at the dinner table to eat. At first I thought his lack of hanging out with us was an indication of family dysfunction. Then we spoke with parents in the same situation and it was the same way with the vast majority of the college students who had to come home. It’s actually an indicator of the strong friendships they have on campus - they are still hanging out digitally.
My husband has been working from home since mid-March. I started my new job at a medical practice in March but graciously didn’t get furloughed.
We are leading a much slower life and enjoying it together!
Keep the FB and blog updates coming!’
