Kailynn's College Shower

The sweet pause of summer tumbles away as books, paper and pens are herded into backpacks and moms look with longing after toddlers who stretch to their highest and march solemnly, if not a little hesitantly, into kindergarten. School year folds into year and suddenly a high school graduate stands in front of a gymnasium crowd with hand outstretched to grasp a well sought after diploma.

One big cheer and a chapter of life closes.

Summer expands before the graduate and he or she clamors to compete and capture a job to build a store of cash for the next adventure: college.


Good luck, Kailynn!

One of our lifetime members, Kailynn Doane, raced through childhood unexpectedly fast and just recently headed off to Linfield College to study math and communications. Before she left the haven of home, a group of admiring friends celebrated her passage to adulthood with what they fondly called a Dorm Shower.

The gift pile included laughter and advice. The afternoon was captured by authors  Carolyn J. Rose and her husband Mike Nettleton, in their blog post titled, One Foot Out of the Nest.
