Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.
Mother Teresa

lots to celebrate with graduation...

...but one of the best things happened in little increments,... over many years of study groups, and Frisbee games, Wii game parties, and mad rush lunches. Shared AP coursework and late night cramming , prom plans conspired together. The good stuff of friendship.

And somehow with guys, it is so much more straightforward and "out there" and easy. These friends of our Landry have been much like brothers to him (as if he needed more HA) Easy to like, smart, fun, we couldn't have asked for better.

These guys are a joy to have around our house, and I will miss them showin' up. In fact, I surely hope they still come round often, and entice Landry back for family weekends and long ultimate Frisbee games with his buds...

Their party was for them...but I think even more for their parents, especially we moms that bonded while watching our now grown young men celebrate a new phase together. All of us moms sorta wishing we could keep them around just a little longer...but knowing its time, and they have so much to give this world.

So, these next posts will be full of the happiness of celebrating Landry and his fun, life of the party self...with a kinder, gentler, part that will even hug his sisters when he's not driving them crazy and vice versa.

Happy Graduation 2010, Landry Parks...we couldn't love you more or be more proud.
