Transitioning

Marissa says, KAYA!

The LO below is about my daughter transitioning from high school to college life. It is difficult to let go especially if it turns my husband and me into empty nesters! Most especially when it is a daughter who has been sheltered all her life going to the big city. Come to think of it...she is beginning to start her own life. Time really flies...so fast it hit me hard!


Journaling:
[To the tune of Camp Granada]
DD: Ready, Mother?
ME: No, my Daughter
DD: I am leaving
ME: See me crying?
DD: For Chicago

ME: I can't let go

DD: Don't you worry...
ME: I can't help it!
DD: I'll be back soon, just get ready with some money in your wallet...!


Materials:
