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

We were welcomed at the University of Tulsa with an organized team of encouragers, helpers, movers in-ers, and mom, dad, sis and bro buttons. Everybody was made to feel important!

..yep, its all kinda overwhelming. All that stuff in a small cinder block room...all needing to find its spot.
Hovering parents, resident assistants eager to help,

... nervous kids and parents making jokes and comparing notes...and an excitement level that I wish could be captured and contained.

Thankfully, the ice cream truck made frequent rounds throughout campus, offering its complimentary delights to all that desired them.

Something pretty cool about going up to the ice cream truck and ordering whatever you want, whenever you want!

Memories from home to make it "his".

mostly treasures from family trips, and projects with mom , dad and sibs., mission trips, marks of adventures to be remembered...and anticipation of more to come.

And, course lots of goofiness..

takin' a test drive...

The day stretched to dusk, when "see ya laters" were said and giant hugs given. We miss you already, Landry!
