Wesley and Robert attended the carnival that night. Yvonne comments, “Wesley had a wonderful time.” Yvonne spent last Thursday night with Destri and Nico.

Chip and I took our grandchildren, Kenden and Jaidyn Joslin, with us to meet our son, Delayne, in Corsicana for dinner on Friday evening. We left there and drove to The Villages Resort on Lake Palestine, where we spent the night. The kids enjoyed swimming before bedtime. The next morning we went to Ruston, Louisiana, and visited with Morgan Joslin, at Louisiana Tech University. We took a walking tour of the campus and went out for a nice lunch. On the way home, we stopped at Daingerfield State Park and swam for a while, and then Chip and Kenden hiked the trail around the lake and Jaidyn played on the playground and fed the geese. On Sunday, Chip’s mother, Grace Vaughn, joined us for lunch, and later visited with John and Linda Vaughn and their family.
Don’t forget about the North Hopkins Alumni Homecoming, which is scheduled for Saturday, October 8th. The event will begin at 4:30 p.m., with registration, Bingo, and visiting. A barbecue dinner will be served at 5:30, at a cost of $12.50 per person, and then there will be a program honoring the Classes of 1966, 1976, and 1986.
