It’s been a bittersweet year for us as we’ve seen two kids off to university. While we’re delighted for them, we have felt and will feel their absence keenly.

Last year, during our final camping weekend of the summer before Maddie left for school, Sarah took this shot that captured the moment beautifully.


I felt much the same about this shot of Jake.


These are some of the best and happiest times for us. As our children turn and walk down new roads, however, I’m finding that it’s not nearly as easy as I thought it would be.

    Herr Professor:

    There are fewer experiences in life more satisfying and meaningful than for parents to send their offspring out into the world without regrets and then have them return again and again as adults and effective agents for the rule of God.

    So, take hope, the future of your family history holds vistas and memories even more meaningful than the past. It only gets better as the mountain peaks grow higher.
