It has been a wild and crazy summer. College has started, and this is how an empty nest feels – quiet and boring. Even the dog is bored. I knew things would slow down after graduation, but I had no idea it would come to a screeching halt. Other than the sound of the washing machine or dryer, I swear I hear crickets chirping. I know Will is having a great time at the University of North Georgia. I also know that he is studying and working diligently to make good grades. He took one class this summer, and made an “A.” Now he has a full course load, and so far, things are looking great. Although I miss having Will here, I know he’s having a good time and meeting a lot of new people. This is the time he has been preparing for since kindergarten. Apparently, I didn’t prepare myself. Just knowing Will is thriving, learning, and having fun makes this mom very happy.
