Daughter- Off to College

We are getting closer to sending Lyd off to college. As a Mom my feelings are on and off. I think this is the hardest part to being a parent. We have 18 years with a child and then they leave the home and head off to start a new chapter in their lives.

The memories start to follow back in my mind of my College years and leaving home. Even though I know in my heart my daughter is not me. The thought of the things she will face scares me.  I went to college in the early 70's and that  was a hard time for me.  In a way I think this time is somewhat harder than back then.

One thing I am glad about is the Internet. We will be able to Skype and the ability to text  in real time allows me to have some peace of mind. Also my blogging will help Lyd know what is going on at home. I just hope she finds time to post on her blog so I can be up on her activities.

Lyd's 18th birthday celebration.
Two more weeks, then it will be time to head out. We have one last vacation planed. Going to a family reunion and then to Canada. We have planed our winter vacation already. Things will be changing for our family. We are truly going to be a empty nest home.
