Travel Day

Luke and Sandee at the check in counter at the Basel, Switzerland airport.

There he goes. Our son heading through security and on to his new life in America. The goodbyes were hard. We miss him already and it's only been 6 hours.

Flying Feet

Luke had my camera in the backseat of the car. Today was a hot day and he had his feet hanging out the window while we drove. He took these pictures. Is this supposed to be art??

Father's Day 2007

Luke, Dad, Tyler - Happy Father's Day

Father's Day '07

Dad and sons, Luke and Tyler, just after eating out in southern Germany.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away.

The view from the restaurant where we had Father's Day dinner. Endenberg, Germany. You can't see them in this picture, but on a clearer day you can see the Swiss Alps bordering the entire view.

Post Grad Activities

Just a few of the 70 graduates visiting our home between midnight and 2:30 am.

Sandee said goodbye to Sarah Kim and Christine Cho at 2am.

2am and these kids still have a ways to go. They stayed up all night with each other - saying goodbye to each one. Most of these MK grads will not see each other in a VERY long time.

The graduates each gave me one piece of paper currency from their various countries. Each one signed the bill and gave it to me during the graduation ceremony. We will put these together as a collage and put it in a frame.

Graduation 2007

Graduation 2007. Here I am opening the ceremony.

Our son, Luke, and friend Adam, coming in to the auditorium to Pomp and Circumstances.

Luke standing among his classmates. They are not ALL girls in his class.

BFA has a tradition of blessing each graduate individually. Here I am blessing my own son Luke and I almost made it without tears - but not quite.
