Saying goodbye, for now, again
I thought it would be easier the second time around, but I was wrong.

We are packing up our oldest son for college this week and I find my eyes watering inexplicably. My son wonders why my eyes are red and I tell him it must be allergies.

What’s curious, though, is three years ago, when his sister started college, the same thing happened.

I was excited for her then, and I am excited for him now.

These next four years will be an adventure and then some. He’ll achieve success and celebrate it. He’ll make mistakes and learn from them. He’ll make do when the dining hall is closed and will discover Ramen noodles are a food group of their own. He’ll make plans for the weekend and plans for the future. (And maybe even plans to come home for a visit now and again.)
