Moving Rachel to College

Well, tonight is the last night that Rachel will stay at this house as her home.

Geez, that sounds

Tomorrow, we are moving her to her college apartment.

She's not going very far, though, so that's good. She will be about an hour from us, in Richardson. Going to Univerity of Texas at Dallas. But tomorrow is the day.
It's been creeping up on us for a while, but we've been thinking about it, too.

This morning, Christi started thinking about time and stuff. We've been together for almost 22 years, now. We've produced two wonderful kids, each with their own set of challenges.

Now, life will change for us. We will have Stephanie alone for a few years. I'm thinking that might be a good change for all of us.

We will miss having Rachel here and will have to kind of reconfigure our evenings. But, again...probably a good change coming.

We are proud, so very proud of Rachel. And, hopefully, we will remaing proud as she takes the world by the horns and tames it.

Or something.

TTFN, y'all.

I know this weekend will be hard but you will be busy with the moving then with church and it will fly by. It is the Tuesday nights and Thursday nights that will be tough but the Lord is faithful. You've raised a beautiful young woman in the Lord and it is time to enjoy watching her figure it out on her own. I'll pray for you tomorrow morning (I'm all prayed up today).
