Hello! Hi! Good evening! I wanted to show you something that I started two days ago, but I am in a different mood now, so it will wait. This is a photo my dh took half an hour ago... and I think it shows how I feel. Happy and sad at the same time, very emotional and sentimental. Our son just left the nest... We (and he) didn't expect it to be today, but life has a way with interfering with the best laid plans. He will soon start his junior year in UC Santa Cruz... which is super good. It was his first choice college and he is more than happy to be there. And so are we... I'm not worried too much (or at least I'm trying not to be) because he explained more than once that I raised him well and that he'll be fine. And I know that it's true and that it is time. It's all good. But I can't help but feel 'different' too... because no matter how often he comes back, I am aware that it will not be the same.
Wish him luck please. He's going to try out for the water polo team. I know that he will succeed but a little good luck always helps.
