I have to say that Wednesday was one of the most surreal days in our lives. A day to be excited about, a day to be incredibly terrified of, it was the college move day for Emilee. I don't know that anyone really wanted the summer to end, but we all knew this day would come. Its a incredibly overwhelming realm of emotions, it really is. You are excited that a new chapter of growth is starting, a new phase of your life, but you feel this overwhelming helplessness that comes with having to just......let.......her........go.....
We grew up with Emilee, we were such kids when we became parents. I remember feeling the exact same way I did Wednesday.........excited, scared, blessed, overwhelmed, proud.
You never forget the first time you hold them.....when they walk.....when they say your name the first time.....when you drop them off at daycare.....when they go to school.....the first time you leave them overnight. God stamps those moments in your mind but more importantly he etches them on your heart. Incredible how much he lets us in on.
But we all survived...or mostly anyway. The goodbye was tough...IT WAS SO TOUGH!
On the move....
Hello, you can't move without food and drink or ice cream.
Is this college or prison?
I want you to move this over here dad, I changed my mind.
