Sam left yesterday. Jerrod had come up from the Vancouver area for the sole purpose of driving Sam back to Vancouver on Thursday. Sam's now on his way to Pittsburgh for a week to record some music of another college friend who has written and arranged a CD's worth of songs. This young man works for Pastor Kurt Skelly, whose church is producing the CDs. After a quick week in Pittsburgh, Sam will join his summer tour group. He's so excited about life right now! He will be a busy young man between now and December, when he plans to get married.
Thank you all for your comments on Sam's engagement story. It's been an exciting time in our lives to watch our eldest finish college and choose his life's mate, and now we're looking forward to settling into our busy summer, which includes a short visit from Andrew and Beth in July. We have a youth conference to attend in June, Vacation Bible School in July, Family Camp in August, and our church's 20th Anniversary in September! It's exciting and lots of work. I do have a couple more weeks away from home later in June, but after that I'll be at home, for which I'm very grateful. Traveling isn't all the fun it used to be!
