oh...the place he'll go!

Oh the places you'll go! 
There is fun to be done! 
There are points to be scored. 
There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball 
...will make you the winning-est winner of all.
~ Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Meet my nephew, Andrew...
a graduate in the Class of 2013.
Oelwein, Iowa

He invited us to his grad party.
We sent our regrets...
since Iowa was a little far to go last Saturday.

And so we send our wishes from afar...
along with Dr. Seuss's sentiments.

(I'm thinking the doctor knew Andrew when he penned his book!)
You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!

Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!


You have brains in your head. 
You have feet in your shoes. 
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You're on your own. 
And you know what you know. 
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...

Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!

Congratulations, Andrew...
from all those who frequent 'my front porch'.
Wishing you all the best as you journey on!

 'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord
'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, 
plans to give you hope and a future.'
Jeremiah 29:11
