So I really wanted to get these up on Sunday, but of course I was catching up from the weekend events. I really just wanted to say happy Father's Day to my favorite dad in the world. I love you dad!

To every mom and every dad, the tall, smart, responsible teenager backing out the driveway always simultaneously exists in imagination with the curious little tyke playing with scissors on their lap--and the same little personality at every other stage, too.

Before I had kids, it was not a role I dreamed about or hoped for. After I had kids, I realized it was the best, most interesting, and most important job I'd ever have.

What a joy to watch and help you learn and grow for so many years--glad I didn't miss a day of it--and what a privilege to have a ringside seat as you carve out your own place in the world with your unique combination of talents and interests.

There's more to say, but I'd better stop before I make the women in the audience reach for a hankie--or me for a kleenex. Happy Birthday!

Oh Shelby that photo of you as a little girl is so absolutely adorable! I miss both of you guys :)
