Nick’s off to college- {Sunday Snapshot}

It came sooner then imagined, our oldest heading off to college. He’s attending the same University where Paul & I met, when it was a quaint 2 year college. It will be neat to see the campus again, so many memories. I’m so happy for him, but I’ll try not to cry all the way home. I wanted some family shots before he’s leaves.

Last Sunday’s dinner was Nick’s choice- Steak w/ sautéed mushrooms and mouthwatering shrimp. I about teared up helping the kids set the table, last one with him for awhile.

Friday night we went to a fun movie I wanted to see with him and the kids before he left, Toy Story 3, made us laugh and the whole college and growing up thing was too familiar, sigh (ya, I cried). Paul had to work, so he took us out to a nice dinner Saturday night. After that, Nick made sure everything was packed then he and Josh stayed up too late laughing and chatting, they are close brothers and will really miss each other. Throughout the day, the girls would say “I can’t believe Nick is leaving for college tomorrow, I’m going to miss him!” They think he’s the bomb for leaving them his drum set (he’s been giving them lessons :), I may not be so thrilled.

Love you Nick! You’ll be missed around here, but we know you’ll do great!

Oh goodness... Toy Story 3?! I saw that on the last night before my Zach left and I was bawling like a baby!
You got some beautiful family pictures... I hope you have one framed and by your bed for when you start missing your boy :)
Happy Sunday!!

Now you got me crying as soon our time will come for our biggest to leave too. I think I'm just going to have to put a stop to it. Put my foot down!

I still remember driving out of the driveway on my way to my first year of college....It was a pretty surreal feeling and he is definitely going to appreciate & remember that he got to have his special home cooked meal the night before he left! I think my mom did the same thing :)

Where is he going to college?

The world is a LOT smaller than when you went to college. He can call, text, and email. You can snail mail or UPS care packages to him. When my son left (he was my only child at the time) for college, I was pretty bummed. It wasn't too bad though. He called daily, texted funny things to me, and I just knew he was having a great time. He'll be ok & you will, too.

Oh my...I can't believe your son is going away to college. They are all growing up so fast. I cried during Toy Story 3 too.....made me miss my big kids and think about the days ahead when the little ones will be grown and gone.

The family photos are just beautiful!
