Kathryn graduated from Lewis and Clark College! Yes, the time has flown by, though when Kathryn begins to lists her many experiences and projects, and I note the maturity and grace she's growing in, surely it's been longer than four years.
|Thank you, Amy, for snapping this pic, I wish you were in it!|
I'm glad you joined us for the grad ceremony!
|Honored for her writing!|
Kathryn pointed out that for every student being recognized for achievement, there are many others who have likewise made great accomplishments, and other kinds of recognition of their efforts.
We enjoyed some of Portland's hot spots, like Stumptown coffee and Powell's bookstore, and Nicholas Restaurant and Tin Shed and Dick's Cafe. Everywhere we went, we ran into groups of L&C graduates and their families, everyone congratulating one another and cheering each other on. At one point, there was a cluster of graduating students talking and reminiscing, and a surrounding ring of parents and family joyfully observing their interactions, and beaming with pride and happiness for our kids. What a great atmosphere.

|Not enough time in Powell's!|
Several times, Kathryn hugged us and thanked us for coming, and for being willing to be a part of the flow of events and gatherings. Thank you, Kathryn, for welcoming us into your circles, and letting us enjoy the people and places you love!
|Beautiful flowers everywhere!|

Prom! John went to prom with Cody, complete with tuxedo, corsage and boutonniere, and group ride in a limo to dinner and to the dance.
