...leaving the nest...


Here is what the babies looked like right before they left the nest for the big, wide world.



...and then they were gone...


This occurrence seems very fitting as it coincided with our youngest graduating from Oregon State University this weekend. She is a remarkable young woman that we are most proud of. She looks really happy, doesn't she?








Here she is with her big sister, also an OSU alumni.


Here she is with, as we are known, "damama" and "dapapa" and her boyfriend Chris. He also graduated that day from OSU!
So our last little bird has flown the nest, out into the big wide world. It was a bittersweet day, complete with a few tears and much reflection. We are very proud.
Go get 'em, Kate! Fly high!
