In general, I do a pretty lousy job of keeping in touch. But today I have to tell rising college freshmen–keep in touch! Stay connected, especially to your family. And what an awesome family I have.
My SISTER GRADUATED from high school after winning at life in general as well as acquiring a bike from the raffle at her school’s graduation party. My other SISTER SURVIVED a foot surgery and is now running around in flip-flops again with her expertly applied mascara and fashionable outfits. My MOM BOUGHT 6 KINDS OF CRACKERS for the graduation party. (Haha, Mom, those crackers were excellent. Also, you taught me how to cook and give me life advice.) And my DAD, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! You are one of the hardest working people I know. Also, you are in better shape than I will ever be.
High school seniors who just graduated, use all your social networking skills for the forces of good. Facebook and Skype are both excellent tools you can use to stay in touch with your families and your high school friends.
