Today

So today was the "first day of school" for our youngest.  She started college at Oklahoma State University and her first classes were today.  She's been there for almost 2 weeks now, just over a week of it "flying solo" after we left to come back home.  She had to go down early because she's part of this Leadership program they have, which was good, because they did allow her to go ahead and audtion for the marching band, since they hadn't started yet, so she was able to be there for band camp last week. 


We talked to her this evening and she's loving it so far!  :-)


And yes - this means we are officially "empty nesters"!

I imagine that's kind of bittersweet...  Glad she's doing good!

Thanks everyone :-) She is doing well and enjoying college so far. It is bittersweet, but she was ready and it's her time to take that next step, so even though I have had some teary moments, it's all good :-)
