I write this blog as my DD sits in her first college class. I can't believe the time has gone so fast. We took her down last Thursday and that is one of the hardest this I have ever done in my life. We had to walk out of her dorm without her!! But, I'm getting ahead of myself. We left at 7:30am on Thursday, her check in time was 10am. She drove her car and the WH took our Expedition with all the stuff. We arrived and unloaded, got her room all set up and then had two "lectures" to go to. They called them welcome seminars, I called them lectures; and most of the stuff they already told us at orientation. It was nice though. We finally took her to dinner at the Outback and then back to her room
We stayed a little while then it was time to go. I stalled as long as I could. I did really good though, I didn't cry until we were back on the highway coming home. It's only been four days and it seems like a month. She is only two hours away and it's not a bad drive, she may be home this weekend, if not then definitely for Labor day. It's just the idea of not having her around everyday. I'm still not sure what the WH and I are going to do when the son leaves too. I guess we'll figure it out, we only have 5 years.
