Okay, James' dearest friend is heading off to boarding school next Saturday.
They don't much care about that right now.
Anyway, tonight his family held a going-away party for him. It was a beautiful occasion, wistful and hopeful and lovely.
He played the guitar, sweet and elegant, sang Justin Bieber hit songs on the steps of his deck.
And if you'll observe the card above--Kari, aka Lydia made this for him, accounting for every single person in our family who will miss him.
Wherever you go, Aaaron, you can't escape love. love always, Val and Jay and every dang kid in this whole house.
