God bless Houston!

Houston is going off to college today, hoping to beat the rush for jobs and apartments. (Karen is a whirlwind of Maternal Emotions, as you can imagine!)

As the aunt watching from the sidelines, all I can do is wonder where the last thirteen years went. It seems like just yesterday I snapped this photo of Captain Kindergarten as he and Bethany went off to their first day of school at Twin Springs Elementary in Danville, Virginia.

God bless you, Houston.
Work hard. Study hard. Pray hard.

Awww, wasn't he adorable as Captain Kindergarten? I'm sorry that I didn't even get to say goodbye!
