The Weeks Ahead


In four weeks we will be dropping our daughter off for the beginning of law school.  We still have so much to do to prepare for her moving into her apartment.  The lists are starting to be made.  It is such an exciting time but time is flying by for me!


(my husband picked this watering can out at the hardware store, isn't it the "cheerful-est" one ever?)


In six weeks we will be dropping off our son for his first year of university.  He is planning to study math and possibly adding physics.  Oh and just maybe some computer programming.  His to do lists are so much longer because he needs everything.  But we will have an extra two weeks between the two kids.



In six weeks I will be cooking for two people instead of four people.  It seems like yesterday we had little children and the years just spanned ahead endlessly.  My husband and I are looking forward to doing so many things now that the high school schedule is no more.  Picnics planned, hikes at the state parks, and weekend trips to visit relatives just to name a few.  Such an exciting time in the weeks ahead :)

  2. You blinked and they grew up didn't they? Sounds like you are in for some lovely times with just you and your husband. Enjoy the weekend and I do hope someone will throw the frisbe for Frodo;)

  4. I felt a few tears forming as I read your happy post...it will (thankfully) be many years before we are where you are, at the same time (selfishly) I am a wee bit jealous, too. Enjoy this busy, exciting time!!

  10. Enjoy the last little bits! I have to admit, even this far away from it, I am terrified of the time you are going through. Maybe by then I will feel differently?!?! Congrats on a job week done, Mama!
