So the day I've been dreading since I became a mom finally arrived! My oldest son Wyatt has flown the coup. Today with many tears shed we delivered him to a plane and he left to start his own grand adventure in Ann Arbor, Michigan. No one really can tell you how it's going to feel when your kids finally leave home. I feel a bit heartbroken, like someone literally took a piece of me away. And then there's the regret of all the things that I could of done better as a mom suddenly hit me like a bag of bricks. But seeing the excitement of a future in his eyes makes all the pain worth it!

oh this so brings back memories of that November day in 1988 when we drove Val into Tucson and left her at the bus station when she joined the Army as that is where she wanted to leave from. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers as Wyatt moves forward on his journey through adulthood as I know there will be plenty of ups and downs as he ventures forth. Love you all.
