This is the week parents as a whole waits for all of their child's young lives, either when they leave home for college or some other venture on their own. Well our youngest son leaves for college on Thursday morning. All of the checklist that he has gotten from Bowling Green State University has been filled. The car we got him for graduating high school is in the garage instead he is taking his bike. its a small campus anyway. Most of all the things are packed are just waiting in piles in his room for Wednesday night.
It seems that every night for the last week we have been cooking all of the things that he loves to eat, red beans and sausage with rice, meatballs and broccoli in noodles pork chops on the grill. Its gonna be strange when we want this stuff from now on its gonna just be for two. The next big menu item is chicken and white gravy over noodles. Him and his older brother used to make this in the slowcooker on sundays when they were both home and its gonna be a change.
He has been going to small gathering of all his friends that he graduated from high school to say his goodbyes to all of them. I sure hope these three days go by as slow as the first 18 years did,but they will fly by like the first 18 did i know...i know it a crazy last line but its the way i see it happening. Have a great week everyone!
