It's Getting REAL!

In just a few short days, Turtlegirl will be moving to her residence hall on campus on the other side of the state. I've been in denial for most of her senior year that she would go away to college.

It's not that I am not thrilled for her.  I am!  I think she made a great choice for a school based on her interests and what she wants to study.  I think living on campus has huge benefits.  This is an exciting time for her.

We've been gathering/collecting items over the summer and now we've started putting them all together.  Seeing all her stuff is a reminder that it's getting real.  She really is on the cusp of a new adventure.

It's getting real! She is moving to college!

** I wrote this several days ago but never posted it.  It is even more real tonight and the pile is much bigger!

  1. Tess, I cannot imagine. Although I've already graduated two (one from public school, the other from homeschool) they did not choose college. I did get to marry a daughter at the age of 21. She was such a baby!
