It’s so much fun to see your kids grow up to be adults, although scary too! You’ve raised your kids, taught them morals, ethics, manners, and the value of hard work and they are 18 and going off to college where you have absolutely NO CONTROL! So hard for a planner like myself and I’m sure for many moms and dads!
You hope all the words you’ve said… the lessons they’ve learned so far are enough to keep them safe and successful going forward!
This moment pictured above is my son test driving “reliable” cars to take to college. He’s looking at pre-owned (aka “used”) cars but NEW to him…. something that has low mileage and we hope will last him 4 years of college and slightly into his first job.
It has been a fun journey to research cars that HE loves and WE love and we think we’ve settled on something! STAY TUNED!
All in just a few weeks he’ll buy his first car, go to prom, graduate and go to Freshman Orientation and move off to college in August! Crazy how 18 years of raising your child turns into this. A HUGE EMOTIONAL GOODBYE!
I think I’m ready… but I do expect to miss him terribly! Only 2 more years until my daughter moves out… Holding on to every minute!
