Tough day...

Daniel left today on an airplane for Portland and he had a one way ticket. I know that I did all that I could with raising him but I still worry about him and miss him. But I also know it was time for him to move on...I just hope that this was the right decision. He took 3 suitcases and shipped his computer in 2 boxes. When I feel like I can go into his empty room then I will box up the rest of his stuff in case he wants it in the future then I will paint it. I was going to paint it a year ago until Michael came home 6 weeks earlier than expected from his mission. My goal is to have it done by the time Kelly gets here. Kelly is my sister and she is coming down for a visit in March over Spring Break We actually have a guest bedroom now instead of a storage room for guests. I never thought it would be so hard to have him go. A few pictures of him through the years.
  2 years old

 9 years old

 He loved to play soccer and was really good at it. 11 years old.

 15 years old

 20 years old

I gues that I should be happy that I got 21 years to raise him. My mom didn't get that long with me. Still today is a tough day. Much harder than when he went to Kindergarten.

My turn is coming a lot sooner than I thought, probably this summer. I guess we will all get through it, but feel for you. Glad Kelly will be there in March. Sure love your family.
