Sad Day Off To college

Hello, I know it has been a while since I have posted or even really done any crafting since my last post.  Today will be bittersweet for me my last baby is leaving for college, even though its about a hour drive from where we live.  Its hard knowing I wont see her when I come home, or will be expecting her to come home when she goes out.  When my 2 older boys left home after high school I knew I still had Savanna at home it would be many years down the road before she would be leaving.  I took it for granted that it would a while  before she would leave for school. Time has flown by so fast I don't know where the years went.  I can say for me that I have taken things in life for granted and her always being here at home I took for granted.  I knew one day she would leave to go to college but that was down the road.  Well tomorrow is the day we take her up there and she wont be coming back home with us when we leave.  I will always worry about her. Its was just a couple of months ago she graduated from high school and now she is leaving.

The past few weeks have been hard for me my emotions have been all over the place I'd sometimes cry driving to work and coming home from work.  I would have to get myself together before I come home so she would not see my cry.   There has been so much going on in my life the past couple of years with family issues, I had to take a break from crafting so I could spend time with my family. Savanna played softball all through out high school.  Her Junior & Senior year of high school we focused on softball, she played for her school and on the weekends, after school was out for summer we played travel ball and would travel all over the state and out of state to get her seen by college coaches. Softball it took a lot of our time during the week and weekends. 


I took some time off this week to be with her and get her pack for college the day has flown by. This time tomorrow night she will be her in dorms. She was excited at first to be going to school and playing D1 college softball.  But now time has come for her to leave and she has told me a few times she doesn't want to leave home.  She likes being home, I encourage her and tell her she will have a good time in college once she gets settled in she needs to get her education so she can be independent and she can support herself and not have to rely on no one.   She is going to school to become a nurse.  I have told her to make common sense when it comes to making decisions. 

Tonight she told its my last night to tell you goodnight, I will miss her it will take a while to get used to her not being here when I get home, Well I wont have to get onto to keep her room clean and take her laundry upstairs. 

Thanks for stopping in
