Good Times at Truman State University
Paul was awarded a full academic scholarship to this unique public
university: one of the few in the country that has dedicated itself to
being a liberal arts university, with a strong focus on academics.
Proof? The Truman State University football team was crushed today, 48-0, by
Northwest Missouri State University. I was not aware there even was a

Mom was glowing, as only moms can do when they are with their sons. It was parents' day weekend and we enjoyed seeing Paul enjoying himself so much, and doing so well. He was happy to see us, proud to introduce us to his friends and show us where he goes and what he does. Boy, it sure brought back a lot of memories of the fun and excitement of college days for his mom and dad! We toured the campus, marveled at a very neat and clean dorm room, which no doubt it always so neat and clean, and enjoyed Paul showing us his progress in his classes, via some impressive online tracking tools the students have. We spent time in the thriving metropolis of Kirksville, Missouri: population 5,000, not counting the 5,500 or so people at the university.
Good times, indeed, thanks be to God.
Oh, yes, I finally was able to meet one of my favorite U.S. Presidents, Harry S. Truman. He seemed please to meet me. He could not wipe that big grin off his face.
