Jennifer and Joshua Bolt have recently returned home from a two-week trip to Minnesota with Jennifer's parents, Vincent and Linda Eikmeier of Henrico. While there, they visited Vincent's family in St. Cloud and Linda's family in St. Leo. They all were especially happy to visit with Joshua's only surviving great-grandparent, Patricia Eikmeier, of Cold Spring. They attended many family events including pool parties, dinner parties, corn-picking parties, hay rides, tractor rides, go-cart rides, card games, and even a “Pioneer Power” festival. Joshua enjoyed the vacation, but he did continue to do part of his regular intensive treatment program for cerebral palsy. At nearly ten years old, he is still learning to walk independently. While there, many of Joshua's relatives assisted him in walking and helped with his daily therapies to help him continue to progress in achieving motor skills, even while on vacation. Jennifer and Joshua are now back to their full program of intensive treatment at home, but they need more volunteers to be able to meet all his goals. If anyone is interested in finding out how they can help, please call 434-574-6536 or email jenilynnbolt@hotmail.com.
