Well. John is about to be a college graduate. His four years at NPU sped by; we are used to being empty nesters by now, aren't we? When he suggested that he would like a "home" party, I was thrilled...our home would be full of energetic young people again! It does get kind quiet with just the two of us around home (with our somewhat senile 18 year old meowling cat - when she's sleeping at least) and besides, we could see again many of John's friends who we have also come to love these past four years!
Some photos of the close to thirty friends (and family) gathered for an early graduation party here yesterday.
We have so many happy memories of being in this home for the past 24 years. Is it time to take the plunge and move back to the city and create a new home in the bustle there? Wes has put up with the worsening travel times to his job in the city, but now is it ridiculous to spend so much time in the car - and so much more pengar for the cost of gas? Stay tuned...but certainly don't hold your breath for a quick resove of this home stretch dilemna. In the meantime, we are so grateful for the sheltering arms of our humble home, and thankful that Anne and John had happy years growing up within its walls of brick and a welcoming yard full of trees to climb and rich soil for seeds to sprout.
