A proud yet sad moment for me today -- I said good bye to my "baby" -- my youngest daughter -- as she heads off for college at Colorado State University! She and her mother are doing the road trip out west, and there is a little part of me that is jealous, but then I think about 3 days on the road, and decided I won't miss that too bad!
She is an incredibly smart and driven student, so I have high expectations that she will do well. She may be back for Thanksgiving, or it may not be until Christmas, which sounds (and looks) like along way off, but the way this year has literally flown by, it will be here before you know it.
Sad, happy, etc...mixed emotions, but happy to see my "baby" growing into a smart, confident, and independent woman. I guess I did my job OK!
