my favorite parts of Sunday night:

helping my sister not to feel
so itchy and paranoid...
having my brother show up with his head protected...
embracing the opportunity to be with family,
generous hometeachers,
laughing,
taking time to appreciate craftmanship and special relationships...
admiration,
enjoying time together,
being able to say quality good-byes;
and hanging out on the bed together.

It's almost time to go.

I love this boy of mine.

I have tears in my eyes reading this. I don't know if it's because of two men I hardly recognized due to weight loss, thinking about this new phase of life you've entered that's quickly approaching me, or all of the above.

I have tears in my eyes too! I don't know that I will ever be ready for that!

Good luck in school!

What a cute family!! It looked like an incredible get-together!! Nobody parties like you guys! R will have some great experiences--he's a good young man!!

Thanks for yesterday, Jen. I can't believe that R is on his way to college. It was just yesterday, it seems, when he was born. Wonderful pictures and thanks so much for sharing. I'm glad Uncle D was there to be with everyone. We have a rough road ahead of us, and being with family really helps to keep our lives in perspective. There is no greater love than the love of family and friends.
