It finally happened. The day arrived . . . we took Julie to college~and left her there. That was really hard on me. Harder even than I thought it would be. It was easier for her. She was so excited. She had 5 darling roommates to get to know and a fun weekend of new student orientation ahead. Although, she did wake me up this morning with a text just before 8:00 to tell me she'd been exploring the campus and what fun things she'd found. I love my Julie. I already miss her so much. It has been a hard day's night. I have a feeling it is only going to get harder from here. Lol.
