Saturday – yes, I’m glad it’s Saturday. I’m taking a few days away from the laptop to get my son to college. Are we ready??? He’s ready—and I think I am too. We’ve had our moments though out the past week. The house is disarray. We were going to church before traveling, but Don changed his mind and wants to leave sooner.

I’ll be back typing (and hopefully quilting) away by the end of next week.

Take care-
Remember it’s not what you don’t have…
It’s what you do have that counts.
Whether it's Quilt fabric,
thread,
or loved ones.

Good luck! Hope everything goes well in getting him settled (and you, too!). Sending the first one off to college is like sending them off to their first day of kindergarten -- but everyone adjusts fairly quickly!

Enjoy this time. It really is fun to watch them spread their wings and start on their own.

Dawn said...

Oh good luck with the trip! I feel for your last week - but things seem to have calmed down now that he is settled and away!

I'm sending you big hugs Melanie, be safe on your trip, and know that your son is going to have a wonderful time.

Have a great trip!

Already planning a goodie box to mail his first week away from home?

Didn't forget the can opener, did you? :)

Good luck - and don't get too tearful! I love the comment at the end of your post- very true.

Have a wonderful and safe trip. One thing that I have learned with my three-as much as you are ready for them to go back, as much as they are driving you crazy in some way, when they actually leave, the emptiness is incrdible, at least until the first time you hear their voice.

I have so many friends taking kids off to college for the first time - I will be taking dd off in a few weeks and I have been thinking of your transition a lot this week - it will be different but it will also be good

good words to live by--not what you don't have.

Bittersweet times packing them off to college like that. My sister is going through that now though her oldest is in graduate school now and her youngest a sophmore--both at University of IL.

See you on your return.

Great post Mel!! And yes, it's not the pieces you are given to work with that matter, it's what YOU do with them..*VBS*

Hope you are having a safe trip and back homme soon, safe and sound. Hugs, Finn
