We Made It!

Baby Girl is coming home for her first visit today!!!

We have all managed to get through the past 6 weeks since dropping her off at college.  Actually, the time went by faster than I expected.

She loves the university she is attending, and has gotten plugged in to a lot of different activities as well as a new church away from home.

Hard to believe we will be celebrating her 19th birthday on Sunday.  I think the hardest thing for me is realizing that this is officially the last year I can say I have a teenager!!!  I know, most would be thrilled with either A)not having been there yet or B)having gotten through them without a major disaster! LOL    Personally, I loved my girls' teen years.  We had a lot of fun!!  However, I am looking forward to the adult years as well.

Happy Birthday Kiddo! You continue to make us proud.
