This past weekend we dropped our youngest off at college, the last birdie in our nest. We are so proud of our daughter but we will miss her very much. As Nan said last week in her MYHS post, "This is what we prepare our children for, to leave the nest. We aren't really raising children, in a way we are raising adults. We raise them to leave us and go out to venture on their own." I couldn't have said it better.
Not only is this a new experience for our daughter, it is a new time for my husband and myself. It's been over 26 years since it's been just the two of us. We are entering a whole new season.
