Tissues required

For me, anyway.

By the time you read this, we'll have arrived at Michael's college and moved him in. We'll have met his roommate. We'll have found his parking spot and the cafeteria (two very important finds, FYI). And if you're reading this after 2 pm, we'll have said goodbye.

Man, I'm going to miss that kid.

Amy Grant wrote this song for her nephew when he went away to college. The song came out in 1997; Michael was 3 years old. I remember looking at him, thinking, "That is such a long way off!" It was a lot closer than I imagined.

So, the moral of today's story is enjoy your kids! They grow up so fast. Really, truly, they do.

And I have now officially become an old person.

Have a great weekend!
