For Kevin

I can’t believe you’re going off to college already! It seems just yesterday you were born. …But we are so proud of you!

Here’s our wish for you..

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
and each road leads you where you want to go,
and if you’re faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin’ till you find the window,
if it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

More than anything, more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
and while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

I hope you never look back, but ya never forget,
all the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
and you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God’s grace, in every mistake,
and you always give more than you take.

Oh More than anything, Yeah, and more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
and while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

I know I'm slackin'…

We’ve just been crazy busy!

School is ending… and with that many milestones are being accomplished. I promise a real update later detailing all that’s happened, but here’s a hint: Kevin has graduated from high school! (I can still barely type those words … much less think about it, without welling up in tears..)

Here’s another tidbit: a clip from Kevin’s farewell choir concert… the last time he’ll ever get to perform with his high school choir.

Kevin singing

Kevin’s choir performed a few weeks ago and in one of the songs Kevin had a solo part. There’s two solos in this song. Kevin’s is the second solo.

If the above doesn’t work, here’s a direct link to the audio file: Kevin’s Solo

Kevin has always loved to sing. In fact, when he was little he never went to the bathroom without all of us knowing it because while he was in there doing his thing, he’d belt out song after song (some he made up on the spot). When he got older and we’d tease him about it (lovingly of course), he would just shrug and explain the bathroom had good acoustics. 😀

By the way, this was recorded on an iPhone. iPhones ROCK!
