I am doing this in installments as time permits.  Part of letting go for me has been to let Mike decide what he would take to college without too many suggestions.  We bought what he thought he needed and lucky for us, his needs seemed to be fairly modest. 


 Then there was the requirement that he leave his room and the aquarium clean…..   



funny how seeing a sink full of goldfish could bring tears to my eyes…

He did it all.  He burned the midnight oil on the night before we left for Dallas after an evening out with his siblings.  Good training for college life, don’t you agree?
