I would like to send my condolences out to the Fuller family for the recent passing of Mary Jean and to the Carter family for the recent passing of Fred. It seems that so many people have passed recently and my heart goes out to all the families during their time of grief.
We have quite a number of recent high school graduates that will be heading off to college in a little over a month from now. Meggie Simmons is heading off to Eastern Maine Community College where she will study radiology over the course of next three years. I think Brian and Leslie might be feeling a little bit of empty-nest syndrome now that their youngest is leaving home. Chris and Shelley Simmons will be watching their two oldest daughters off to college this fall as well. Adrienne will be attending Charleston Theological Seminary in Charleston, Maine and Ellie will be heading a little further north to Presque Isle where she will be studying nursing. Sandy Flacke’s daughter, Sierra, will be attending Farmington this coming year and is already settled into an apartment there. Best wishes to all these ladies in the year to come.
The boys and I, as well as a few more of their friends, spent a day in Camden last week touring the Nina and the Pinta that were in the harbor for the week. It was an interesting experience that tied into our homeschool studies quite well. While on the Pinta, one of the crew members was kind enough to sit down with the kids and answer all their questions. It seemed to be a fun experience for everyone.
