Eldest daughter is getting on an airplane tomorrow morning and leaving me.
She was chosen to represent her school at an environmental conference in California. The conference is titled; ‘Changing your Latitude. Changing your Attitude.’ Cool, eh?
I am thrilled that she has this opportunity.
This however will be the first time that she’s traveled to a different country without me.
She’s going a long way away.
I know she’ll be safe as she’s going with good people.
I also know that this is a week that she will remember for the rest of her life.
I want her to grow. I want these opportunities for her.
I also want her home in her own bed tomorrow night where I can see her and know that she’s safe.
This growing up stuff is hard – on me.
I love you J. Have the time of your life.
