The Next Chapter

We moved Jarrod in to his dorm room on Sunday. The day had to come eventually, I've been kind of dreading this for a few years, knowing that once he left for college, things would never be the same. Not that it's a bad thing. We are so proud of him and all of his accomplishments. And we look forward to all that lies ahead for him. It's just that his daily presence will be missed..I can't help it..We loved having him around! He's been away from home before, so why should this be any different? Probably because this is the beginning of his journey toward self sufficiency, independence and serious adulthood. He'll rely less and less on mom and dad. Again, all good stuff, but I'll admit it, it's going to be hard not to be needed so much.

So the house is a little quieter and I'm already buying fewer groceries, Roger and I are adjusting. Thank goodness we have each other! We'll make it through this new era in our lives. We've heard from Jarrod via text, he is having loads of fun already. He has a great roommate and some good friends from high school that are there with him. He's so excited about starting the semester. I couldn't be happier for him. It's his happiness that sustains me. I can't wait to hear more! But just the same, I'm already counting the days until we see him again. Well, there's always Skype..
