Keen Observations on Life … Whether You Need Them or Not

Well, another summer in the books … which means it’s time to go back to college

2 Comments

I made it through another college departure, as our son headed off for his junior year after dinner.  And I didn’t even cry in front of him. much. We did it, I remind myself, as my emotions run the gamut from heartbroken to overjoyed … because all of our hoping, dreaming, planning, and saving have made it possible for him to return for another year to university, to pursue the things that most interest him, and will help build the man he is to become. But I’m sad … now it’s just me and Steve. Well, and my husband (who’s way better than Steve). Summertime is the best because we get in so much adventuring and dreaming and all the stuff. Sigh. Good luck to all the college-bound kids out there, and good luck to all their parents. You did it, even though it breaks your heart to know the future is just that much closer. If I close my eyes, I can still feel his little heart beat against my chest.

We adventured in Colorado this summer.

  1. Feeling a little weepy myself. I can feel my baby’s heartbeat just like it was yesterday. My prayer for you and Matt is that you look back on all the wonderful things you’ve done as a family. AND look forward to all that awaits you in the future. Hope your future is so bright you have to wear shades 🙂
