Off to College!
It finally happened, and we survived it. We took our older daughter Lexi to begin her college career. She was nervous, her mom bore up but not without traumatic pangs, her sister was quiet, and I was shell-shocked. (Well, what with one last-minute preparation thing and another, we managed to only get about an hour or so of sleep before getting up at 5:30 a.m. to hit the road. So once we were there, and she was moved in, and Allysen and I were attending presentations for the parents, a certain amount of nodding off was taking place.)
Anyway, she's there and we're home, and we hope all is rolling smoothly toward the beginning of a great college career. I have great faith in her, and my only concern is how we're going to manage here without her. Here's a picture she took of herself and me a couple of days before leaving:
