259/366 - Kate's birds; She had them inked on her shoulder in honor of her mom, who passed away nearly two years ago. Since then, she's become a second daughter to us too, and this next week she'll take off for college (to the same program and place as Nick, amazingly).

I asked her if I could please take a picture, capture those birds for a moment, before she flies away to all the good things God has for her. I'm a lucky woman to get another amazing girl to love.

Come home soon, Kate. We love you.
