Landon, Laiken, Dixie, Rylan, Brailon, and Slaiden Joslin camped at Cooper Lake State Park last week. Chip, Grace, and I visited them on Saturday evening and swam with the kids. Grace (100) and Chip paddled on the kayaks for a little while, and then we got supper from Tejano’s Mexican Restaurant in Cooper and all enjoyed eating together at the camp site. Laiken’s aunt, Rhonda Harness, brought her grandchildren, Brailee and Levi, over to visit, swim, and play on the kayaks on Friday.

Jason Beck, son of Kim & Lee Beck, will be wrapping up his Naval career and will be heading home from Japan next week. He will have a stop in Washington and then making his way to Dallas to start his new chapter. Kim shared, “We are excited to see him and want to thank Jason for his service!” I know I speak for many others in expressing our appreciation for his service, as well!

Yvonne Weir reported, “Natalie picked up Everly Saturday morning. (Natalie & Dustin had been traveling in Mexico.) Dacy and the kids, also, came by and Eli fished.” She adds, “It was good to see them before I left for South Dakota.” Yvonne enjoys traveling back there to spend time at her family home place. 

If you know of anyone who would be interested in a custodial job at North Hopkins ISD in the evenings – 3-11:30 p.m., please have them contact the school at 903-945-2192, Option 3.
