I am, at this moment in time, sitting in a hotel room after spending the day moving my oldest away to college for the first time. He has been at the local community college for the last 5 semesters, and transferred for the Spring 2010 semester to an in state University, 2 1/2 hours away from home.
I am so excited for him, but at the same time sad to see him gone from our home. My little one, who is only in kindergarten, is gonna miss his big brother terribly. We cleaned, and set up, and decorated, and washed things for 6 hours! It all came together very nicely however. The color theme for his room and bathroom is black, charcoal gray, and eggplant, with touches of stainless. Very urban chic, it is. He has always had a flair for the more dramatic color scheme.
After finishing up we enjoyed a simple dinner of pizza and soda pop from our favorite Eastern Shore pizzeria. Pepperoni, sweet peppers, and extra cheese! Yummy...
Tomorrow morning we will finish up by making a trip to the local Target, Home Depot, and grocery store for the neccessary amenities, food, and a fan for his bedroom. Then off we will go on the return journey home.
He has gone from kindergarten to a junior in college in the blink of an eye...much faster than I would have ever imagined. Life does fly by at a very unpredictable pace!
I keep reminding myself to "love the moment" whatever it may be...you don't know what the next moment may bring.
