Tomorrow is the day. The BIG day.
MOVE IN DAY at UVA
The summer was spent in preparation for THIS day… making and revising “lists”, taking your experienced suggestions, and compiling the beginnings of his Tate’s new DORM home. Yesterday, he and I inventoried everything, packed it up and it is all sits on our dining room table. Ready to go.
Tate is our first born…and such, he has weathered our inexperience at every turn. He is a trooper, patient and kind, and I have thanked him for forgiving our blunders. I know that parents say goodbye to children every day. I have seen my family and friends go through it and come out fine. And I know….we will come out fine. But this son, this boy is MY boy, I have never raised a child all the way from birth to adulthood…and then let go…it feels so unnatural and yet it feels exactly right. He is going to be great…we are close by…it could be harder on so many levels…but that does not mean that in any way shape or form…THIS is easy. It is the least EASY thing I will probably ever do.
Until next year…
There is no more to say…just many things to do. I will see you guys on the other side of this, and we can get busy doing all the things we do together. Until then…XO
