We had my Daughter's going away party yesterday. Over 50 family and friends gathered to tell her how proud we are of her and for some to say good bye cause she won't see them again before she leaves on Aug 12.( That leaves her with this coming weekend and the following weekend and then the weekend after that she leaves....)
It was a great day, and today was good too because we had another mini get together with some of her friends that stayed over. At the end of the day when everything was cleaned up and the last person left, I looked over at her and she was crying. She said that everyone was gone, and she would be leaving soon too. I was good and haven't cried yet, but it is getting harder and harder to hold back. It is just so hard to balance out the feelings( proud of what she is heading towards, yet be so sad because she is leaving.
I have a feeling that I will be on here more and more over the next coming weeks and months........for support and advise....
