This weekend we had not one, but two college graduations. Daughter #1 graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio, daughter #2 from The University of Miami. 1 day and 1,500 miles apart. The timing left a tad to be desired.
We flipped a coin, my beloved and I headed for San Antonio, their father and stepmother won a no expenses paid trip to Miami.
My beloved graduated from Trinity herself - never thought she'd be sending them a legacy. I went to Junior High right across from the University of Miami. The world is indeed a small and compact planet.
It's the oddest feeling. I didn't have empty nest syndrome when they graduated from high school or left for college. Nothing was finished, there was still 4 more years of college to finance. But now they are really and truly "done".
Motherhood is never really over but I can definitely close volume one. I wonder how volume two will read ?
