For those of you who may not be friends with Kevin on facebook and haven't heard his announcement: He and his friend, Sam Brooks, are planning a two month trip to Europe in the fall. I'm counting on a couple of dear friends in London and Berlin to hug their necks for me and make sure they have a decent shower and a proper meal once or twice while they are trekking their way around the continent.
Here's a peek into why I absolutely LOVE having teenagers and young adult children. Samantha is one of Alyssa's best friends and one of my absolute favorite young adults in the whole world. Enjoy the following facebook dialogue and see why I think my kids and their friends are some of most amazing young people EVER (and I want to preserve and savor this moment). We moms can feel invisible much of the time, so we must treasure times such as these.
