It wasn't just a group of errands. It was part of a whole new experience for me.
Yes, we've sent kids off to college before, twice to schools across the Atlantic Ocean from us while we were living in Germany.
But...they were girls. And I always thought that the boys would be, well, easier.
I was wrong. Boy, was I wrong.
To go into the reasons that it's such a different feel this time would be too hard tonight so I won't try. I'm still hoping to sleep a few hours before this very emotional adventure and I can't afford to turn the tears back on. Suffice it to say that we would appreciate your prayers as we launch Nathan into the next season of his life and we adjust to family life without his daily presence.
God has big plans for this wonderful young man and no matter how hard it is to let him go, we look forward to watching the plans unfold...
Update tomorrow on the Snippets.
