Second Departure/Zweite Abreise

Jonathan left today to get back to college.  His classes will start on Monday.  Peter drove down with him to help him move into a new dorm.  He also has a new roommate, a biology student.

Jonathan ist heute wieder zum College zurückfgefahren.  Sein Semester fängt am Montag an.  Peter ist mit ihm gefahren, um ihm beim Einzug in ein neues Studentenwohnheim zu helfen.  Jonathan hat einen neuen Mitbewohner, der Biologie studiert.  

Well equipped for the new semester: a German Bible and a new book on philosophy.
Gut ausgerüstet für das neue Semester: eine deutsche Bibel und ein neues Philosophiebuch.

Peter sent this picture from Latrobe: Mozart Hall, built by a German.
Peter hat dieses Foto von Latrobe geschickt: Mozart Halle, von einem Deutschen namens Seiler gebaut.  
Charlotte has finished her first three days of classes.  Her roommate and she took the bus to Presque Isle.  All students can use the bus system for free!

Charlotte hat schon drei Tage Seminar gehabt.  Ihre Mitbewohnerin und sie sind mit dem Bus zu Presque Isle gefahren.  Alle Studenten können die Busse kostenlos benutzen!

And here are some wildlife pictures from our house.
Und jetzt noch ein paar Bilder von der Tierwelt um und in unserem Haus.


  1. I keep up to date with Charlotte via Instagram and it looks like she is settling in quite well. Hope Jonathan's second year goes well, does the house seem strange without them? Do you manage to video call via an app or Skype? Happy Sunday to you all xx

    1. I think she is doing well, she has not said she is homesick so far. It is Jonathan's third year, he is Junior! Now with two gone, it seems much emptier, but I also have some plans for rearranging the two children's rooms upstairs so that everybody else has more room. This house is really too small for us and all our belongings. We normally write e-mails, I guess we are not the Skype type. We also don't call on the phone. But we do keep in touch.

  2. Wishing Jonathan and Charlotte a wonderful school year! Good luck with your room rearranging. It will probably feel good to do. I can't believe it's Jonathan's third year already!
