Home Safe and Sound!

My son arrived home safe and sound from his trip to Germany on Tuesday. It has been a pretty busy week. We are now getting him ready to head off to college on August 5th.
I believe this picture are from Lucerne. He had a great time and Iam so glad that we are able to send him on this once in a life time trip. He took tons of pictures and I am so grateful!

My husband and I joke that he left on the trip a boy and came back a man. Could this been from all the beer he drank?
The last few days have been full of emotion for not only me but I think for all of us. You raise your kids and when they are little you are always wanting them to grow up. You want them to roll over, sit up, walk ,talk, go to school.... But little do you realize by doing this the time will come that it is time for them to leave the nest. Although you know one day it will come I don't think you are every quite ready.
I know that my husband and I have done a great job and he will do well out in the world. I guess the sad part is that once he leave it will be different when he returns.
He will "always" be my little boy and I couldn't be prouder!

The main thing is to be proud of what you have done.

If he is the way you wanted him to be, you can look back with pride at the part you played in that.

Take care and best wishes.
