So, I'm thinking I haven't even mention where Libby will be headed in the fall.  The University of Colorado.  It's so hard for me to believe that when I started writing this blog, Libby was 8 years old and in second grade.  To all the young young mamas out there... the days are long but the years are fast.  Try really hard to settle in and enjoy every minute.  Even when there are dirty dishes and piles of laundry.  It truly can all wait.
Libby's core group of friends are going to be spread out all over the United States.  I'm so excited for their next Chapter.

Oh!  Of course those are our beloved Chalk Lots.  :)

  1. I remember when my youngest (of four), and only daughter, headed out the door to her adult life. It happens so fast. If you ever need a cathartic cry, just listen to Suzy Bogguss singing, "Letting Go." It will do the trick. Best of luck to Libby...and you.

    The good news is that my daughter is now a mom herself, a wonderful woman and my best friend. Something to look forward to.

    Congratulations! The University of Colorado is a wonderful college choice for Libby. I may be biased since it is my alma mater. Being a Boulder native, I know that your entire family will enjoy your visits here. We are a very healthy community with so many things to do. Please feel free to contact me if you have any local questions, I'd love to be a resource for you all.

  3. Colorado is lucky to get her!

  4. I was going to ask which University of Colorado, but I see from the picture it's Boulder. I live here outside of Colorado Springs and our Universities are awesome. Tried to stear my kids that way but they wanted to fly! One went to VT., did a year at Oxford and has graduated, to get a job back East. My son's in Maine. Yes I'd say the years go too fast and I'm glad I have one left. Wish I could do it all over again. Your daughter will love Colorado and Boulder is a funky town like my Manitou. She'll have fun.

    Ho'omaka'i to these young women. I like how they're independent and going to different colleges. Good luck to them.

  6. So exciting!!! And what a fantastic photograph- they will all treasure it for decades to come, that was really smart to get them to write their universities on the chalk lots!

  7. Wonderful young women, ALL of them! Good luck to you all!!
