Here's Kelly, ready to start her college experience by entering her dorm room for the first time. She moved in today at Emory University. She was excited and happy, but also said she felt overwhelmed. The years ahead of her as a pre-med student will keep her extremely busy as she follows a dream that she's had since she was 8 years old.
It was hard leaving her there when it was time to go. I held onto her and found myself unable to release her from my arms. As the tears rolled down my cheeks, I couldn't help but think that it seemed like yesterday that I put her on that first school bus to Kindergarten.
Yes, I am proud of her and her accomplishments. I am excited for her in what she is going to experience and learn and I am happy that she is going to the school of her choice. Now, if I could only stop crying!
Good Luck Kelly ....I love you! :)
