Driving Away

Today I watched my oldest son back the car out of the driveway and drive away. Now, granted, he was in a car marked “STUDENT DRIVER” and he arrived home safe and sound with his instructor (who had his own set of brakes in the passenger seat) two hours later, but still.  It is a weird experience. I got so verklempt I had to retreat into the house so that he didn’t see me get a little weepy.

But, I realize that’s how this whole thing works. Eventually they do fly (drive?) away from the nest. And that’s a good thing. So, please just bear with me while I get used to the whole idea.

roots to grow

Together may we give our children roots to grow and wings to fly

  1. My oldest just graduated high school so I understand what your feeling. No matter how old they get, we will always see them as our babies.
